I’m headed off to SPX in a couple weeks (Sept. 26-27). I’ll have more info on that soon. But in the mean time, get a load of this panel we are doing on Sunday the 27th (middle of the day), it should be reason enough to make the trek to Bethesda Maryland:

Comics and Community
Dylan Williams (Sparkplug Books) leads an open and audience-inclusive discussion about the role independent comic creators, publishers, and distributors play in the comics community and how they can work together using principles of community organizing and resistance. Sally Bloodbath, Robyn Chapman, Benn Ray and Frank Santoro will talk about the internet, drawing nights, DIY networks, stores, distributors, publishers, friends, fans, clients, media outlets, tours, pooled resources, conventions and convention. Audience members are encouraged to bring their ideas.
