Fluke Mini-Comics Festival

The annual festival for mini-comics, zines and small-press publications offers an opportunity for artists, underground publishers and enthusiasts to share their latest projects and ideas. Shying away from becoming an advertising-saturated convention, Fluke keeps its setup simple to keep visitors focused on what matters. The venue will be filled with as many tables as possible for exhibitors to display their latest creations. Works range from fold-out paper comics the size of a thumbnail to fully illustrated graphic novels covering every genre imaginable. Sponsored by Bizarro Wuxtry and Inch-High Button Guy, the festival is co-organized by Robert Newsome, creator of wrestling zine The Atomic Elbow, and Patrick Dean, an illustrator and comic artist.
