Mini-Comics Day in New Mexico

Mini-Comics Day / April 7000 BC Meeting | Saturday, April 9 | 1:00–5:30 | Lomas Tramway Library | 908 Eastridge NE | Albuquerque, NM

Grab your pencils and pens. Make a comic. In one afternoon.

7000 BC will present New Mexico’s only Mini-Comics Day event on Saturday, April 9 from 1:00–5:30 at the Lomas Tramway Library in Albuquerque.

No rules, no formats, no required subject matter — only fellow creators and resources to help and inspire you. Show off New Mexico’s creativity and create a comic that you can print and distribute.

Some supplies will be available and there are photocopiers at the library. You can prepare yourself by reading about Mini-Comics Day at the official site and checking out the resources. If you plan on participating, please send an email.

This will also serve as 7000 BC’s monthly meeting.

Minneapolis Jam: February 2011

That’s right. Now that we’ve reached our zenith at 100 jams, it’s time to travel back in time and upload some jams that I may have failed to scan on time. For our first feature, let’s get in our time machine and zap ourselves all the way back to February of 2011. Minneapolis was a cold, desolate wasteland, Grimalkin publisher Jordan Shiveley had just moved into town, still a little wet behind the ears, and nations in the Middle East were peacefully overthrowing their despotic rulers. It was a simpler time.

The theme this month is:

Mini-Comics Day Update

There’s a little over three weeks to Mini-Comics Day (April 9th)!

We currently have twelve sites listed around the world planning events for Mini-Comics Day. If you are interested in hosting an event, let me know… email me at webmaster(at)

There are some new resources available on the Mini-Comics Day website that event planners and participants may find useful, including customizable promotional posters and flyers.

We also have templates available on that page that you can print or provide to people as an easy guide to lay out their mini-comics with (for 8-page and 16-page minis). Inexperienced mini-comics creators may want to print out the How to Make Mini-Comics mini-comic.

If you use facebook, you may want to check out the Mini-Comics Day facebook page.

For the Minneapolis event we plan to have an after-party event where we will give out a prize for the local “Best Mini-Comic of the Day,” judged by three local non-cartoonists; author of Superheroes, Strip Artists & Talking Animals: Minnesota’s Contemporary Cartoonists Britt Aamodt, Big Brain Comics proprietor Michael Drivas, and Altered Esthetics founder Jamie Schumacher. The prize will include a copy of the book Newave! The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s, courtesy of Big Brain Comics.

We also hope to also include the comics submitted for judging in an upcoming gallery show at Altered Esthetics… more information about that soon.

Please do spread the word.
