Big ol’ thanks to Mike Rhode at the Washington City Paper for all the love he shows SPX. Rhode has a great article at the Washington City Paper running down all the comics-related events coming up - starting today with the Baltimore Comicon!
Here’s a quick rundown of Mike’s list (see his full article for further details) along with a few other items we’ve thrown in that you should have solidly on your radar over the next few days.
