See Me at the 2017 MSU Comics Forum This Saturday
It’s the most magical time of the year: the week of the MSU Comics Forum at Michigan State University! I’m attending once again as a member of Artist Alley and I’m excited to return. This year, I’m showing off my new weekly comic, Foxes & Boxes, which I started back in September.
When is the MSU Comics Forum?
The MSU Comics Forum’s main events are this Friday and Saturday (Feb. 24 and 25, 2017). Friday features the annual keynote address, with one of this year’s speakers James Strum. Saturday brings Artist Alley, panel discussions, and the second keynote address with Charles Hatfield. Both keynotes will be livestreamed.
You can find me in Artist Alley on Saturday starting at 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM.
NOTE: There are two rooms for Artist Alley, so not everyone is in the LookOut! Gallery right by the front. Take a short walk down the hall to find the rest of the artists.
PANELS NOTE: the international travel ban caused some international comic scholars not to make it this year. Read this post on the MSU Comics Forum website.
Where is the MSU Comics Forum?
You can find all the comic-related good times in Snyder/Phillips Hall on Michigan State University’s campus. Follow the signs for the Comics Forum upon entering the building.
Admission is Free!
There’s no reason not to come check out the fun on Friday or Saturday, as the admission is exactly zero dollars. This includes everything: Artist Alley, the keynotes (there are two this year), and the panel talks.
You shouldn’t have to pay for parking either (there’s a chance you could have to walk a bit, so pack your Segway).
What I Am Bringing?
2017 is a transition year for me when it comes to comic shows. I scaled back my appearances this year¹ and I’m in the process of clearing out older items as I shift my focus to promoting Foxes & Boxes.
The only new item I’m bringing on Saturday is volume one of my Foxes & Boxes mini-comic (see the photo above). This new mini-comic collects pages one, two, and three of Foxes & Boxes. Unlike my earlier mini-comics, this one is in color. I decided to experiment with color minis this time around. I’m selling them for $1 each, or including them for free with the purchase of anything else.
I will have items from last convention season for sale too, including some things I don’t think I had at MSU Comics Forum last year (like my 2016 coloring book).
Please come see me at the MSU Comics Forum this Saturday!
¹ Sadly this meant skipping Cherry Capital Comic Con and Motor City Comic Con this year. I’m planning on going back next year ::fingers crossed::.
