    Jeff Alexander, the former Executive Director of SPX (Small Press Expo), passed away this past weekend of an apparent heart attack. I did not know Jeff other than by an e-mail submitting SPX for our convention calendar, but my condolences to his family and those who knew him well.

    SPX’s official statement regarding his passing can be found here, and Greg McElhatton provides a nice tribute on his blog.

    DC – Small Press Signing

    Comments Off

    Richard Thompson & Keith Knight sign on September 9, 2010 from 7:00pm-8:00pm.

    In conjunction with the Small Press Expo (September 11-12 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center), we’re delighted to host two artists who excel at contemplating the minutiae of everyday life and making it hilarious. Thompson’s strip Cul de Sac is focused on a loveable family in a suburban development, while Knight’s Knight Life is told through the eyes of a city dweller.
