If you attend SPX last year, you helped us put 200+ graphic novels from independent publishers into local libraries. Everyone who comes this year will help us place even more.
Let’s take this thing nation-wide.
And as always, SPX supports the efforts of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Your visit to SPX helps to ensure the protection of creator rights and preserves free speech for comic artists.
I am going to hum the damn national anthem in a minute.
No those are not tears.
I have something in my eye.
Both of my eyes.
You just shut up, ok.
One of the best indie-publishing events in the nation has embarked on a new way to entice and encourage more comics readers. Maryland’s Small Press Expo announced Wednesday night that it is launching a Graphic Novel Gift Program and that its first recipient has been selected: the state’s Montgomery County Public Libraries. SPX’s first offering is a gift of 230 graphic novels to the library system’s 20 branches. Small Press Expo is held each year in Montgomery County, in Bethesda.
