FLUKE! Mini-Comics Festival


Art by Dan Smith

It’s time for FLUKE!, the annual festival showcase for mini-comics, zines and small-press publications to get together and flaunt their colorful, hilarious, witty and always zany creations. The exhibitors list this year is over 65 artists strong, including such local faves as David Mack, Dan Smith and Eleanor Davis. As always, FLUKE! is not a merch-saturated comics convention but a forum for artists, publishers and enthusiasts to share and exchange ideas. The official sponsors of the event include Bizzaro-Wuxtry, Flagpole magazine and freelance illustrator Anthony Fisher. The event runs from 11 a.m.–6 p.m., and admittance is $2.
