Festivals Extra: SPX Announces Another Round Of Special Guests For Upcoming 20th Anniversary Show
The Small Press Expo
announced another round of guests for its 20th Anniversary show this September 13-14. They are: Box Brown, Eleanor Davis, Michael DeForge and Roman Muradov. They join two previously announced groups: an alt-weekly themed set of guests of Jules Feiffer, Lynda Barry, James Sturm, Charles Burns, Jen Sorensen, Tom Tomorrow, and Ben Katchor, as well as a more general group of Brandon Graham, Emily Carroll, Drew Friedman and Mimi Pond.
All of the cartoonists have work out this year, the first three major books. I'm super glad to see Muradov on hand in support of two comics that will be out at the show, one from Nobrow, one from Retrofit. He's a really intriguing visual talent and hasn't really hit with audiences yet -- as opposed to critics and art directors, so I hope this new work is as good as I expect it to be and I hope it finds a sizable audience this weekend and past it.
