SPX 2016 Announces Special Guests Lisa Hanawalt, Jeffrey Brown, Charles Burns and Sarah Glidden

spx-logo-240Small Press Expo has announced Lisa Hanawalt, Jeffrey Brown, Charles Burns, and Sarah Glidden as special guests for SPX 2016. These guests are in addition those previously announced for the 40th Anniversary of Fantagraphics celebration; Daniel Clowes, Carol Tyler, Jim Woodring, Drew Friedman, Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez, Ed Piskor, SPX first timer Trina Robbins, and a rare festival appearance by Joe Sacco.

Hot Dog Taste Test serves up Lisa Hanawalt’s devastatingly funny comics, saliva-stimulating art, and deliciously screwball lists as she skewers the pomposities of foodie subculture. From the James Beard award-winning cartoonist and production designer/producer of Bojack Horseman, Hot Dog Taste Test from Drawn & Quarterly dishes out five-star laughs, as Hanawalt keenly muses on pop culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us.

Jeffrey Brown is the bestselling author of Darth Vader and Son as well as the Jedi Academy series from Scholastic Books. He began his comics career with Clumsy and other autobiographical comics that chronicled everyday awkward and intimate moments from life. His new book, Lucy & Andy Neanderthal from Random House Kids, is a heavily researched middle grade story about prehistoric cavemen kids. He lives in Chicago with his wife and sons.

Charles Burns is renown for his epic graphic novel Black Hole, for which he won the Eisner, Ignatz and Harvey Awards. In addition to work in set design, posters and advertising, he has worked for such periodicals as Raw, The Believer and The New Yorker. SPX 2016 will see the debut of Last Look from Penguin Random House, which presents the Nitnit Trilogy of the previously published X’ed Out, The Hive and Sugar Skull in one volume.

Cartoonist Sarah Glidden accompanies her two friends—reporters and founders of journalism non-profit—as they research potential stories on the effects of the Iraq War on the Middle East and, specifically, the war’s refugees. Joining the trio is a childhood friend and former Marine whose past service in Iraq adds an unexpected and sometimes unwelcome viewpoint, both to the people they come across and perhaps even themselves. The group travels across Turkey, Iraq, and Syria, with Glidden’s observations resulting in her latest book, Rolling Blackouts, that will debut at SPX 2016 is published by Drawn & Quarterly.  Glidden (How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less) records all that she encounters with a sympathetic and searching eye. Painted in her trademark soft, muted watercolors and written with a self-effacing humor, Rolling Blackouts cements Glidden’s place as one of today’s most original nonfiction voices.

In the next few weeks, SPX will announce the international guests coming from all over the world to attend the show, the 2016 Ignatz nominees and a full slate of programming.

SPX 2016 takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 17-18, and will have over 650 creators, 280 exhibitor tables and 22 programming slots to entertain, enlighten and introduce attendees to the amazing world of independent and small press comics.

SPX and Nickelodeon announce Best Baddies

SPXSPX 2015 saw the very first Nickelodeon animation call for submission at an indie comics festival. The open call was an unprecedented opportunity for SPX creators to present their animation ideas and skills to members of the Nickelodeon team and become a part of its annual 2015 global Animated Shorts Program.

More than 70 members of the SPX community presented their pitches to the Nickelodeon staff during SPX last September to see if theirs would be chosen to be developed into an animated short as part of the program. Nickelodeon has announced that Max Wittert’s Best Baddies was selected and is in production. Mr. Wittert is an illustrator and cartoonist based out of Brooklyn NY, whose work has been published by The New York Times, Time Out New York. Additionally, web comic Jean & Scott, a take-off on The X-Men, led to it being published by Marvel Comics. Best Baddies is about four magical villainess girls who challenge the status quo of their dull city by trying to convince other girls to join them and become fellow villainesses.

The SPX 2015 call for submissions was part of Nickelodeon’s 2015 Animated Shorts Program, which this year chose 22 ideas from around the world to be developed into shorts that will either potentially air on Nickelodeon or be able to be viewed on its web site. The annual program, overseen by network development executives, accepts domestic and international pitches that will be developed into animated shorts for the Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. audiences. Designed to cultivate a new generation of creative talent, the Animated Shorts Program aids in Nickelodeon’s mission in making the best and funniest content for today’s kids.

Nickelodeon found such a wellspring of creativity at SPX, that additional opportunities have been offered to SPX creators. Numerous pitches were put up for consideration in series and long-form development, freelance design work was offered to a few creators and an internship was offered and accepted. Other SPX creators are still in contact with Nickelodeon to shape full series pitches out of their shorts pitch.

SPX 2016 takes place this year September 17-18 at the Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center. It will have the largest exhibitor presence in indie comics, with more than 650 creators, 280 exhibitor tables and 22 programming slots to entertain, enlighten and introduce attendees to the amazing world of independent and small press comics. SPX is also home to the prestigious Ignatz Awards, which is the only festival prize in indie comics, with nominees voted on by attendees at the show.

The 2016 Nickelodeon Global Animated Shorts Program is now open for submissions through April 15.
