SPX 2012: the pile
Just returned from the Small Press Expo this weekend in Bethesda, and a grand time was had as always. I sold, traded or gave away all but a handful of the new Monstaland mini, so thanks to everybody who showed an interest in it! Now that I'm going through the stack of books I brought back with me, I thought I'd share some brief thoughts. First up: Important Comics vol. 2, by Baltimore artist Dina Kelberman. Asbury Park Comic Con and was immediately taken with it. The first volume is called Important Comics Are Bad and the back cover blurb is a letter from a City Paper reader pleading with them to cancel the strip, so that pretty much sets the tone right there. Atomic Books for supporting great local artists like Dina! Dina's website.
