Come See Dancing Lemur Press at GalaxyCon Raleigh!

It’s been a long two years since the last one, but we are finally back at GalaxyCon at the Raleigh Convention Center downtown.

We’ve got a lot of new books to feature from the last two years. Plus we have new art prints and a ton of new stickers, both anime and Baby Yoda.

Watch our Instagram feed for fun cosplay photos of characters holding our books.

At least one of our authors will be there – Steph Wolmarans from Dark Matter: Artificial!

The con has also widened the passageways between booths, added sanitation stations, limited ticket sales, and instilled a no-touchy policy. Everyone at our booth will wear masks and have sanitary wipes and hand sanitizer available. Plus we’ll have a disinfectant spray to get those pesky germs that are in the air. (I guarantee we’ll have the cleanest booth there!)

Exhibition areas are open July 29 2-8pm, July 30-31 10-8pm, and Aug. 1 10-6pm. Event hours go until midnight most nights! Headliner guest is William Shatner and there are a ton more.

For more information, go to GalaxyCon Raleigh

Hope to see you there!
Just remember – irradiated lemurs will bite.
