Small Press Expo 2014

September 13, 2014 - September 14, 2014



Alternative Comics returns to The Small Press Expo with the most new books at any show since our re-launch in 2012 (and the most debuts at SPX in a decade!). You can find us at table I7. We will be right next to Kilgore Books again. David Nuss and Revival House Press (distributed to the comic book direct market by Alternative) will be running the table with Marc Arsenault again this year. We will have several artists joining us, including Malachi Ward and Noah Van Sciver. Derf Backderf will be around the corner from us with the debut issue of True Stories #1. Brandon Graham will also be paying us a visit and signing copies of Escalator. There will be a Big Feminist But signing with Mari Naomi, Ed Luce, and MK Reed. Signing times to be announced. Follow us on Twitter for all of that info. Alternative Comics published artists elsewhere at SPX include Dean Haspiel, Josh Neufeld, Farel Dalrymple, Nick Bertozzi, Rob Ullman, Robyn Chapman, Sam Alden, Sam Spina, and Theo Ellsworth.
