This year’s Small Press Expo will be held September 15 and 16 at the Marriott Bethesda North Conference Center. They’ve just announced the first of their special guests, and boy, they’re doozies. I’ll let Warren tell you about it, because I can’t do any better than he can:
Dunno if you heard, but we have one of the most amazing lineups ever. In fact, I am so hyped up about it I can barely type out that we will have not only Chris Ware and Dan Clowes, but also Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez!!!
Yes, indeed, The Fab Four of indie comics, all here at SPX!!!
This will be the first time at SPX ever for multiple Ignatz Award winners Mr. Ware and Mr. Clowes. In fact, as best as anyone can figure, this will be the first time in the 21st Century that Chris and Dan will be together at the same festival in the U.S. And for Los Bros Hernadez, this is the 30th Anniversary of Love and Rockets, with SPX being their ONLY East Coast festival appearance to celebrate this great anniversary.
The show is also expanding the size of the floor by half again and adding 35 tables to allow more exhibitors with wider aisles, which should make for easier browsing and shopping.
