SPX 2007 Report

Christin and I represented ICON Studios at the Small Press Expo (SPX) last week in Maryland. We were there selling copies of Like That as well as promoting our new webcomic, M.O.P.S. The show was smaller than I expected but still the largest comic centric show we’ve exhibited at yet. It was a little larger than Staple! in terms of number of exhibitors and floor space, but there many wasn’t that many more attendees which was a bit disappointing. We didn’t sell that many more copies of Like That than we did at Staple! this past March. There were enough people that we handed out all of our M.O.P.S. cards and stickers. We received a lot of great feedback on the project which we hope will translate into more site traffic. We probably won’t do SPX next year because for the price, we can do an even bigger show like WonderCon or ComicCon. Our next shows will be on consecutive November weekends: Nov 3rd at the Louisiana Book Festival and Nov 10th at the New Orleans Book Fair.
