As many of you know, the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (SPACE) was recently forced to change both its date and location due to it's host hotel closing it's doors. Thankfully, SPACE's head honcho Bob Corby was able to reschedule the annual event for this summer at a new (and in my opinion) improved location.
Unfortunately, some of the exhibiting comic creators are unable to reschedule and others are stuck with travel expenses that can't be recovered.
To offer an option to those exhibitors, Nix Comics is going to run a small one time show. "Extra SPACE" will be held on Saturday, April 11th from 12:00-5:00pm at Strongwater Food and Spirits. Extra SPACE will make room for up to 30 tables of vendors.
The Application is open now.All comic creators, artists and publishers are welcome to apply for table space, but priority will be given to those comic creators who were most affected by the reschedule of the main show.
