Minneapolis Indie Xpo 2011Superheroes, Strip Artists, & TalkingThe second-annual Minneapolis Indie Xpo takes place this weekend at The Soap Factory in Minneapolis. Festival founders Sarah Morean and Andy Krueger created the event to celebrate independent comics and midwestern cartoonists. They explain: “Minneapolis is a great place for comics. As one of the most literate cities in the nation, Minneapolis supports several large book and comics festivals each year. The Minneapolis Indie Xpo is proud to call it home.  The Twin Cities metro area is home to at least 11 different comic shops, including a few Will Eisner Spirit of Retail Award winners.  The Minneapolis Indie Xpo welcomes independent cartoonists and publishers, the people whose sweat and cash directly support their creative habits. Admission is free. ”

Check out their lineup of exhibitors, including Danno Klonowski, Zander and Kevin Cannon, Reynold Kissling, Bob Lipski, Brittney Sabo, Barbara Schulz, Tim Sievert, Andy Singer, and Steven Stwalley, a few of the many talented artists featured in Superheroes, Strip Artists, & Talking Animals by Britt Aamodt.  Chris Monroe, illustrator of the new children’s book by Kevin Kling, Big Little Brother, will also be there, displaying her Violet Days comic.
