I will be here at table J4 with Mooshe and Johnny! I’ll have Urban Buzzes, Dorothy Dixsons, and some other zine-stuff.
I’m trying to print more stuff last minute but my printer is awful!
OKAY, HERE’S THAT SPX INFO I PROMISED I’D TALK ABOUT YESTERDAY!
- COMIC BOOKS! Fresh, fascinating and 100% independent!
- MERCHANDISE! Wear comics all over your body! Sort of!
- ART PRINTS! Beautify your walls with rad art!
- COMMISSIONS! From obscenely cheap to premium grade!
- FREE SMILES! Miles and miles of them!
We’ll be at table E2. We might not be listed on the program, since we bought this table off someone who had to cancel, but REST ASSURED, we WILL BE THERE.
Two new things I’ll be offering are an Epiphany Preview with the first bit of Chapter 3 in it (to promote the book coming out next year!) and an extremely limited color print edition of Finding Your Power Animal, ensconced in a collector’s clamshell VHS case. Mad might have some new stuff in addition to her usual bag of goodies, too, but she’d be better at talking about them than me.
If you missed us earlier this summer in some of the more ridiculous conventions we’ve been to, catch us here in this extremely legitimate and prestigious context! It’ll be awesome times for everyone, guaranteed. There’s no way I’m nervous.
Reblogs are, as ever, always appreciated!
But getting my mitts on a Chris Ware poster wasn’t what our Labor Day SPX business was all about…
We had charitable works to perform! Look for an announcement later in the week detailing our 2012 Graphic Novel Gift program, which benefits a different public library system every year.
Today, though, we were unpacking boxes (and more boxes) of graphic novels (from publishers like Koyama, Fanatgaphics, Adhouse, D&Q and Top Shelf) and fitting them all with a “Gift of SPX” bookplate. Their next stop is a library shelf where the can be leant and shared in our local community.
We’re extremely passionate about this program and I can’t wait to spill all the details, including the really kickass bookplate we’ve got for 2012. To give you an idea of what to expect, here’s the 2011 bookplate created for us by the exquisitely talented Lilli Carré (who, it should be noted will now be appearing at SPX this year!).
Lilli’s bookplate was placed in over 200 graphic novels that were bestowed last year to the Montgomery County Library System. We’re extremely proud and incredibly grateful for her support of this program. She couldn’t have gotten us off to a more lovely start…
We’re super excited to have Michael attending SPX this year. We’ve also for some fun MD news that we’ll be sharing in good time.
Did I Mention that we’re thrilled to have him (and the rest of the Koyama gang) at the show this year?
It is early days yet, but volunteers make the SPX world go round and Yitzy is nothing if not a loyal soldier in the SPX volunteer army.
Volunteer for SPX 2012!!!!!!!
I had two whole people asking me about volunteering for SPX and so here’s the official volunteering link/form so get to it.
I’m going to be at Stumptown Comics Fest on April 28 & 29! I’ll be sharing a table with the divine Sarah Burns. I’ve never been to Portland before. I am expecting Carrie Brownstein to meet me at the airport.
And I’ll be at SPX—my very favorite small press con, and entirely coincidentally the only one I’ve ever been to—on September 15 & 16!
So if you are near Portland, OR in April or Bethesda, MD in September, come and say hello. I’ll have prints of NO ONE IS SAFE, and the minicomic that unfinished panel up there belongs to, and postcards, and I will be very nice, I promise. Or you can stand at a discreet distance and laugh at my hair.

Hey kids, wanna have a table at SPX this year?
Click the link below (or the little box at the end of this post) and fill out the online form. You’ll be notified the minute tables go on sale!
We’ve got the biggest SPX ever happening in 2012 and we’re looking to knock your goddamn socks off.
We’ve added a few dozen additional tables and we’ve opened the room up substantially in size to help folks get around to see all your awesome work.
Even with the extra space, we expect to sell out of table space as fast as ever.
Drop your deets and we’ll send you an email as soon as the registration form goes live (January-ish). Past exhibitors (2010 & 2011) are already getting a note.
This should help us reach anyone else who’s interested in grabbing a spot.
Please share this with anyone you think might be interested… And thanks!
