Event: SPX 2012 Recap

Picture taken by ErinSomehow, between a fish fry, a county fair and a wedding reception, Adam and Shawn managed to find time to attend the Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda, Maryland! This made for a crazy busy weekend, but boy did they have a blast! SPX is one of the best comic conventions for indie creators and the floor was filled with incredible talented people selling awesome books. The vibe at the show was so fun and welcoming that once you go you will want to return every year! SPX is a definite must-do convention (especially for those with even the slightest interest in non-mainstream comics).

Runtime 1 hour 5 minutes 25 seconds

Sit back and relax while Lamar Abrams chats about his newest book Remake 3xtra from AdHouse Books.

Lamar AbramsGet your fill and gear up for next week’s show where Adam and Shawn will review the books they purchased at SPX 2012!

One of the great things about SPX is the feeling of community. It is a fun and exciting show. It is energizing to be around such creative people for two-whole days! Plus, everyone is super nice! The exhibitors all seem happy to be at the show which makes chatting with creators a pleasure. The friendly atmosphere makes catching up with old friends just as easy as making new friends! This year’s show was bigger and better than ever. The guest list included big names like Chris Ware and Dan Clowes in addition to the incredibly talented people who attend year-in and year-out. The Dollar Bin can’t wait to see what next year’s show will bring!

Fluke Athens 2010

Last Saturday was the 9th annual Fluke show in Athens, GA and the Dollar Bin folks were there keeping it real.  This year Adam and Shawn took their Fluke attendence to the next level by actually participating as sellers with a table and everything.  Brian was there too grazing through the fields of mini-comics (Let’s be honest that’s what Adam was doing too while Shawn was doing all of the work).  So let’s listen in as Brian and Adam get to have all the fun.
