STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo
STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo takes place over two days with more than 200 vendors showcasing independently made comics, zines, art, crafts and games. Visitors can interact with artists, sit in on workshops and panels, and enjoy refreshments from the venue’s full-service food court.
Highlights include a live art show benefit and educational panels and workshops. Every year, a new guest artist is selected to interpret the show’s mascot, “Staplegator.” This year’s Staplegator was designed by Carey Pietsch.
