And folks, we are packed.

There are more than 360 incredible cartoonists and publishers attending SPX in 2012, along with the already announced special guests: Chris Ware, Dan Clowes and the Hernandez Brothers. We have a lot to do between now and September. We’re aiming to knock your socks off.

I know there are some disappointed folks out there who were not able to secure a table for this year. I wish we had infinite space to accommodate you all. Whether you did or didn’t get a table this year, let me say on behalf of everyone at the Small Press Expo: THANK YOU.

Thank you for supporting this show and making the event what it is. In turn, we exist only to support your work – to see that your creative product is promoted to new audiences, protected from censorship and preserved for posterity.
