SPX roundup

Publishers Weekly (subscription required) files a brief report from last month's Small Press Expo, which drew more than 2,400 attendees -- a convention record:

"The SPX convention focuses on the creators and readers of small-press comics and graphic novels — the big publishers of American-style comics attend only informally, and the manga industry isn't involved at all. The stars of this show are independent comics publishers and the bulk of its tables are occupied by self-publishing cartoonists."
