spx-logoEvery summer the gang at the 8th Wonder Press orbital satellite hits to road to bring fine comics to conventions around the country.  There’s always been one show that’s been a little elusive for us, though: the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD.  We’re all really excited that this year we’ve made it into the line-up!  This year’s guests include amazing talents like Dan Clowes, Trina Robbins, Jeffrey Brown, Tom Gauld, and….well, let’s just say it’s rarified company to be in.

This is our first East Coast show, and we’re really excited to get a chance to meet a whole new group of fans (particularly INDIE comic fans).  If you’re going to be at the show September 17-18, please be sure to come by and say hi.  And if you’re not already planning to be there, it’s not too late to make plans.  SEE YOU AT THE SPX!
