SPX: The Small Press Expo | September 16-17, 2017
The Small Press Expo serves as a platform to promote and preserve the independent comics art form while raising funds to protect the artists right to create them.
Profits from SPX go to support a variety of charitable programs. SPX makes an annual contribution to The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which defends the First Amendment rights of the comics community.
SPX also endows public library systems with funds to purchase graphic novels at premium prices from our participating independent publishers. This library gift program has placed thousands of graphic novels in public libraries in the Washington, DC and Baltimore metro areas.
SPX also maintains a permanent collection at the Library of Congress, collecting and preserving the work of independent comic artists and also preserving the institutional records and ephemera of the Small Press Expo.
The Small Press Expo is the premier showcase for the exhibition of independent comic books and the discovery of new creative talent. SPX brings together over 300 artists and publishers to meet their readers, booksellers, distributors, and each other.
