Calendar Pick: FLUKE Mini-Comics Festival

Credit: Jay Domingo

The 21st annual FLUKE Mini-Comics Festival cultivates a conversation between comic artists, underground publishers and their enthusiasts. It is a zone of discovery for those interested in mini-comics, zines and independent publications, functioning as a platform for sharing ideas rather than simply advertising or merchandising. The festival will feature material to suit all interests, from children’s works to more serious narratives. Its sponsors include Bizarro-Wuxtry, Inch-High Button Guy, JOKERJOKERtv, Mystic Punks and The Sequential Artists Workshop. Masks are required for all attendees at this year’s FLUKE. A free pre-party for the festival, hosted by podcaster Cam del Rosario (Gutter Boys) and cartoonist Abby Kacen (Mild Pain), will be hosted at Bizarro-Wuxtry on Mar. 29 from 6–9 p.m. and will feature live comic readings by Eleanor Davis, Pat Rooks, Joey Weiser, David Caldwell, Victor Alpi and more.
