SPX 2010

Bookmark and Share

This was my first Small Press Expo comic book show and I have to say I’m impressed, for the $10 or $15 dollars, it’s absolutely worth the trip, especially if you’re looking for smaller press comic books.  Most of the time, you can meet and talk to the writer and/or artist right there which is a nice touch.

The bad things were the show was a bit crowded, causing me to not stay too long.  The other issue is things are a bit expensive.  I have no problem paying for books, but it limits how many purchases I can make when I’m dropping $20 for a graphic novel.

Even so, I still walked away with a pile to review (there’s a nice back up and lots to come after this and Baltimore Comic Con).  Below are what I walked away with.
