small press shows
Boston gets its own small-press show this weekend: The fourth annual Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, aka MICE, takes place Saturday and Sunday at Lesley University in Cambridge.
While Boston may not be New York City, or even Portland, Oregon, we do have a pretty good comics presence here, and it’s also close enough to other cities that artists can easily make the trip. This year they have a pretty amazing guest list that includes Chris Duffy (editor of SpongeBob Comics and the just-released Fairy Tale Comics), Maris Wicks (Primates), Josh Neufeld (The Influencing Machine, A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge), Nick Bertozzi (Lewis & Clark, The Salon), George O’Connor (The Olympians, Journey into Mohawk Country), Mike Cavallaro (Foiled!), Nick Abadzis (Laika, Hugo Tate) and R. Sikoryak (Masterpiece Comics).
