MICE 2011

Mice don't really garner a lot of attention and praise. One in particular should though and that's the MICE that stands for Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE 2011), taking place Saturday, September 24.

The show goes from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM in University Hall at Lesley University in Cambridge. There's a huge list of exhibitors, including Ming Doyle, Kevin Church, Tyler James, Box Brown and the Boston Comics Roundtable, just to name a few. It's a show dedicated to independent, alternative, small-press and self-published comics, webcomics and 'zines.

The best thing about the show (beyond the incredibly awesome indie focus) is that admission and all related events is free. Those related events include workshops, panels and an art show.

Full press release after the jump.

MICE, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, returns for a second year on September 24th, from 10 AM–6 PM, in a new location. The Second Floor Atrium of University Hall, at Lesley University’s Porter Square campus in Cambridge, will be the site of the Boston area’s only show dedicated to independent and alternative comics, small publishers, webcomics and ’zines.

The event also includes an exhibit of original comic art and a day-long series of panel discussions which will focus on the growing interaction of comics and graphic novels with other spheres of modern culture. Admission to the show and all related events will be free.
