Bethesda, Maryland; February 14, 2012 – The Small Press Expo (SPX), the preeminent showcase for the exhibition of independent comics, graphic novels, and alternative political cartoons, welcomes our 2012 exhibitors to this years show, which features special guests Dan Clowes and Chris Ware.

SPX increased the floor space and table count this year, but tables sold out faster than in any previous year. 

A partial list of exhibitors is available on the SPX website at spxpo.com/exhibitors. SPX will continue to update the online exhibitor list over the next two weeks as application processing is finalized.

Creators and publishers who have submitted applications who are not in the online list will be notified of your status by March 1. No further applications are being accepted, but information on a wait list will be available in March once final assignments are made.

Any questions about the status of table reservations should be sent to exhibitors@spxpo.com.
