We are back from SPACE, the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo, in Columbus Ohio. This year’s show was the fifteenth in a series, and very sincere thanks go out to Bob Corby and his team for another great April weekend. I laughed a lot, I learned a lot, and I brought home a stack of great comics. Took a bunch of pictures, too, and had a few adventures (you’ve already seen my new lucky penny), and I’ll be sharing the best parts with you here.
But my personal high point this year was Perpetual Motion winning second place (it was a tie) in the Best Minicomic or Short Story category at the annual SPACE Prizes. I have a particular fondness for this mini, particularly its cover, and I was very pleased that the judges liked it too. I won this handsome plaque, and got to say a few incoherent words of thanks and everything:If you want to read Perpetual Motion, my official award-winning minicomic, just click here.
