Short Run Comics & Arts Festival

November 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Short Run Festival

Come find us among the delicious madness and mayhem that is Short Run!

It’s our first year to participate and we hear there is going to be one row dedicated to small literary presses, but we’re super excited to be in the company of so many talented comic and art vendors: so much inspiration in one day!

Talks, films, workshops and more books than you could possibly ever read!

First fifty in the door get a sweet swag bag, including some goodness from us.
