Last weekend, at Baltimore Comic-Con, I had the opportunity to run in to several members of the SIUniverse fam in attendance. One of the alums I visited with was artist Robin Ha, who was exhibiting in Artist Alley for the first time. Not only was it great to catch up — however briefly — but it was also an opportunity to get a print copy of Banchan in Two Pages, a pretty cool recipe comic she’s been updating on the tumblr of the same name.
If you love comics and live in the Baltimore-Washington area, this is a big week. The ever-growing Baltimore Comic-Con just concluded one of its biggest shows ever, filling the downtown convention center with fans, cosplayers, and families looking to meet artists and have a generally good time. And this coming weekend, 45 minutes down I-95 in Bethesda, the Small Press Expo (SPX) will be celebrating its 20th anniversary.
A veritable who’s-who will be in attendance at the Marriott Bethesda, including Ignatz Award-nominated artist Yumi Sakugawa. In honor of SPX — and for a limited time, Yumi is letting you read her nominated minicomic Never Forgets online for free.
