Michigan Goes Indy
w/ SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival

This week the war of the big bank comic convention juggernauts has erupted with the pop-culture conventions battling it out to bring in as many A-List comic creators as possible and to stake their claim to late summer comic conventioneering domination. The topic has been a heavily discussed one on blogs and messageboards the industry over.

But the most interesting news of the 2005 comic convention season isn't about pop-culture con behemouths pounding each other in the head... the real news is SNAP!

A showcase for indy, small press, and self-published comics in the grand tradition of SPX, MOCCA, and San Francisco's APE Con, SNAP! is designed to showcase local talent and to create a community amongst Midwest indy comic creators and their fans. Founded by Katie and Dan Merritt of the excellent Green Brain Comics, SNAP! stands tall in the eye of the comic convention hurricane, celebrating the artform, the artists, and bringing something truly special to the 2005 comic conventioning season.

SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival
5121 Oakman Blvd.
Dearborn, Michigan
Saturday, October 29th
