Here’s the press release for the upcoming Source Mini Indy ComiCon event on December 30th. Please note that I had the date for this wrong in the previous post… it has been corrected. This should be a lot of fun, and there should be a lot to see… when I spoke to Nick he already had over a hundred independently published books that had been contributed to sell at the event! Here is the press release.
CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE!
â€œWelcome the opportunity to feature some of our favorite aspects of the greater comic book communityâ€ said Dominic Postiglione, co-owner of the Source â€œIndependent & Alternative comic book creators and cartoonists drive the diverse world of graphic literature right up to the bleeding edge of popular culture.â€ Postiglione continued â€A graphic literaure blender that is constantly changing, evolving and delivering something new and enticing in who knows what format?â€
A Mini Indy Comicon is especially appropriate given the regions rather strange history of being a geographical breeder reactor for comic book creators and cartoonists. The Source, a long time supporter of Independent & Alternative Creators, welcomes the opportunity to showcase a much valued and often underserved segment of the industry, that is a virtual creative nuclear reactor.
Look for 14-20 Independent & Alternative Creators to be in attendance at the Source Mini Indy Comicon. They will be doing sketches, discussing & promoting their work and interfacing with the people in attendance! There will also be complimentary soda, snacks, and a very special prize drawing! The Source will also be featuring over 250 Independent & Alternative comic book titles and cartoons in various formats at the store during the week.
â€œThis is a highly rarified gathering of very talented individuals!â€ Postiglione summarized â€œAnd weâ€™re inviting the general public, seasoned comic fans, new comers and anyone else who is interested in graphic literature, to attend this very special and free event!â€
The only claim to fame Dominic Postiglione co-owner of the Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award winning Source Comics & Games make is â€œthe comic book I like the least, I like more that the comic book you like the most!â€
