We were able to head down to the Small Press Expo in DC this weekend!

The show was especially exciting for us because we were up for two Ignatz Awards, for Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki’s This One Summer and Gene Luen Yang’s Boxers & Saints.  This is the first time in quite a few years that we’ve been up for an Ignatz!

We also had lots of great authors at the show, signing wonderful graphic novels!

Farel Dalrymple’s post-apocalyptic drama The Wrenchies was a show debut for SPX!  We were really glad to have Farel at the show.
