Two Days to SPX
A really good thread to keep on top of for SPX is this one at The Comics Journal board. Jeff Mason started this as a public service to check up aon what different creators will be bringing to SPX this year. It's a good preview of what will be on sale and it might help you compile your shopping list. I find that I need to write down what I want to try to pick up, because as soon as I walk into the show I get distracted like a kid in a candy shop.
I really love Jaime Tanner’s mini-comics and looks like he’ll have at least two that I haven't had the chance to pick up anywhere else.
The first is DIAMONDS, a "32-page minicomic involving sisters, dreams, severed limbs and a bunch of birds." Of course there are birds!
He'll also have "most of my old minis, including ALWAYS IN LOVE AND OTHER STORIES OF DEATH AND DISMEMBERMENT, which debuted at MoCCA a few months ago - 64 pages, about half from various anthologies, half new." Yay, I don't have that one either. Tanner's link is on the left under mini-comic cretors and he puts out consistently good minis.
