Everyone Within Driving Distance Should Attend Autoptic


I hope that anyone with a chance to attend will be spending some time with the Autoptic Festival over the weekend. That is a great region for comics people right now, and a very interesting show with a unique perspective and the ability to pull off with some flair everything they've decided to embrace. One hopes for five, six, a dozen shows that highlight scenes and cover comics from an independent and medium-focused standpoint while having things unique to each city, and I think we're on our way to getting there. Minneapolis is key.

I also think that the arts- and alt-comics community could use a bridge event between spring and Fall, particularly if MoCCA continues to stay out of its former home in late June.

Here's a pretty good article that mixes basic information with some statements on focus and intent. It sounds like they have an excellent mix of talent, too. Here is a podcast if like me you are making beef jerky and boiled eggs today and need both hands.
