Now on its twelfth year, the always classy Small Press Expo (SPX) is happening this Friday and Saturday at the Marriott Bethesda North Hotel & Conference Center. Over 400 comic book artists, writers, and publishers will be in attendance including “big” names like Bill Griffith (Zippy the Pinhead), Jeff Smith (Bone), Matt Wagner (Grendel), Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets), plus up and coming superstars like Nicholas Gurewitch (The Perry Bible Fellowship), and a whole slew of indie talent you’ve never heard of.
They’ll also be dishing out the Ignatz Awards during some sure to be lame ceremony. As always, profits from SPX will go to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, protecting the First Amendment rights of comic book readers and professionals, cause I mean, it’s not like anybody is going to donate to the cause willingly.
