S.P.A.C.E., the Midwest's largest exhibition of small press and creator owned comics, is celebrating its 11th year in Columbus with a new website (www.spacexpo.info) and a new location (Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center, Columbus 4900 Sinclair Rd.). Designed by resident S.P.A.C.E. vollunteer artist, Tom Williams, and lorded over by event coordinator, Bob Corby, the new website provides all the info from the tried and true decade old website, a history of the show, a list of exhibitors, more accessible contact info and features a new blog to boot. (The website is still in progress, so if you find any broken links, contact Tom.)
If you're an artist/writer/publisher of indie comix, sign up for a table to exhibit your work (Tables are still $55 till February but fear not, it only goes up to $65 for full tables. Still a bargain compared to other indy shows)! If you're a reader/lover of comic books, be sure to clear your calendars on APRIL 24 & 25 to see all SPACE has to offer in 2010.
This show is purely a grassroots effort/ DIY show. So, anything you can do in your area to help promote this is a good thing. The show lives and dies by word of mouth so spread the word.
