New Con: Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo

09/15/2010

Just in case the Boston Comic Con and New England Webcomics Weekend weren’t enough, September 25th brings the first Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo or MICE. MICE is a show dedicated to independent, alternative, small-press and self-published comics, webcomics and ‘zines.

I’ll be the first to admit my ignorance on truly independent comics. I understand that there is going to be some diamonds in the rough, but that’s just it: there’s a lot of rough. There may be some quality behind that random table at a comic convention, but I don’t have the time or desire to  talk to each creator about why their book is new or interesting. A more focused convention is perfect for this sort of thing. Without the distraction of big name creators, visitors will be forced to take some time and find something they just don’t get at the shop every Wednesday.

Tip of the hat to Thom Wilk for the heads up on MICE.
