SPX (Smal Press Expo) 2013

Sept. 14, 2013 - Sept. 15, 2013

The annual SPX comics and graphic arts festival presents the best and brightest established creators in independent comics. In addition to the opportunity for public exposure and potential revenue the festival provides to attending artists, the event also allows less established to network with publishers and prominent creators, providing unique opportunities for the comic artist/writer that is just starting out.

SPX prides itself on maintaining an open (rather than curated) registration policy and open access between attendees, exhibitors and volunteers. SPX is unique amongst the various comic book exhibitions, as it does not allow retailers to have a formal presence at the festival. Only creators and publishers are allowed to exhibit. The festival includes:

A public exhibition where artists, creators and publishers and the public interact in an informal setting. Graphic novels, comics and related merchandise are for sale and SPX attendees can interact with the attending creators/publishers.
A series of symposium held during the festival, where creators of comics engage in formal panel discussions and/or interviews open to SPX attendees.
SPX often sponsors off-site events the week of the convention, including academic seminars, book signings and school outreach programs.
