With an independent artist sprit, a mini-comic book expo coming to Savannah

All you do-it-youselfers, creative types, and general comic book aficionados: Better plan a quick trip down to Savannah for the "Mini-Comics Expo."

The event is being put on by the SCAD Sequential Art Department upstairs at the Pirate House, 20 East Broad Street, in Savannah, on Saturday, March 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Close to 40 vendors  — students, alumni, and faculty of SCAD’s acclaimed sequential art department — will be on site to exhibit and sell their self-published mini-comics and zines.  This event celebrates hand-made comic books and DIY publishing. Other department-related publications and student anthologies will also be available.

There will also be a series of fun demonstrations led by faculty and graduate students, including drawing comics and creating and binding comic books open to kids and adults alike.

The Mini-Comics Expo and all the workshops are free and open to the public.
