MICE Preview 2018

One of my favorite things about the Fall is that it means that it's time for the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE).  MICE is going into its eighth year, and it's a wonderful (and completely free!) showcase of small press and self-published comics (think Small Press Expo, but smaller).



This year's special guests at MICE include the terrific lineup of Vera Brosgol, Jim Woodring, Tillie Walden, Tony Cliff, Keith Knight, Rosemary Mosco, Andrew MacLean and Charles Forsman. These creators make up only a small amount of the talented creators that will be at MICE (including other fantastic creators like Lucy Bellwood, Nate Powell, Ben Hatke and Panel Pal Ansis Purins) along with thought-provoking panel discussions and a number of events for kids.

I think this will be my sixth or seventh time attending MICE, and each time I go I pick up something new and interesting and unexpected (and a few years ago had the opportunity at MICE to participate in a panel discussion on writing about comics, which was a great experience). As I said, it's a completely free event, and a great chance to meet some wonderful comics creators.
