Minneapolis Indie Xpo


In case you haven't heard: The second Minneapolis Indie Xpo is happening next weekend. 

In case you don't know what that is: It's a weekend-long exhibition (and celebration) of local comics, held in the Soap Factory.

Why you should care: Comics are awesome. Minnesota is full of amazing cartoonists, writers, and artists. The event is free, open to the public, and is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with all the talent bubbling up in the Twin Cities. 

Why you should care part two: Paper Darts is one of the sponsors of MIX.

What this means: Aside from spreading the word about how amazing MIX is, we will also have a table at the event, from which to sell our wares and keep an eye out for amazing artists to feature on our site. Additionally, I will be modering a panel on Sunday, November 6 on the subject of comics and literature.

About the panelists: 

Barb Schulz, teacher and comic book artist
Eric Lorberer, editor of Rain Taxi Review of Books  
Mark Ehling, writer, collaborator with Will Dinski on Old Guys, New Tricks
Jeff Kamin, producer at MPR and host of Books and Bars
What will be we talking about: A little of this, and a little of that, but mostly about where comics fit in to the world of literature, and what they accomplish in that fantastic space.
