It is with a heavy heart that I make the following announcement. Sergio Aragones, our 2015 MSU Comics Forum Keynote Speaker, has cancelled his visit due to health concerns. In an email, Sergio writes,
Thank you for all your efforts on my behalf, but after serious consideration (including a talk to my doctor) I realize I can not take that long a trip plus the driving and the change of planes, so, sadly I will have to decline your invitation.
I was already counting with the pleasure of meeting my young fans and making new ones.
I hope that your request for my appearance at MSU can be extended for another year, I hope that by then I would be completely recuperated and able to take the long trip.
Please let my apologies be known to all,
Please join the me and the MSU Comics Forum committee in wishing Sergio a speedy recovery. You’ll be missed in Michigan, Mr. Aragones. Thanks for all your work in comics and we hope to see you next year.
MSU Comics Forum – Director
