There’s just over a month until SPX 2013, the Small Press Expo held in Bethesda, Maryland, and I’m going!
As announced earlier, the show is expanding its space this year, so it looks to be bigger and better than ever. SPX is one of my favorite conventions for being focused just on comics, with plenty of old friends and new discoveries. I’ll have to watch my acquisitions this year, given that it’s no longer within driving distance for me, but what a terrific problem to have!
The special guests are amazing this year, including
* Congressman John Lewis, co-author of March from Top Shelf
* Jeff Smith, responsible for a generation of comic readers with Bone, now releasing RASL
* New Yorker cartoonist and children’s book author Liza Donnelly, demonstrating the breadth of the medium
* Modern underground classic Peter Bagge
* Raina Telgemeier, whose Smile and Drama speak to millions of young adults
* Israeli cartoonist Rutu Modan (The Property)
And many, many more. Visit the show homepage for the list.
Are you going to be there? Which exhibitors should I look for?
