Last year's debut of the Minneapolis Indie Xpo was a huge success, proving that the Twin Cities has a genuine affinity for independently created zines and comics. The festival returns this year with expanded dates so that more folks can visit throughout the weekend. For the 2011 event, over 200 artists, publishers, and website personalities from the U.S. and Canada will be in attendance, exhibiting their creations and talking with guests. Those slated to be there include locals Big Time Attic, PUNY, Altered Esthetics, and Big Brain Comics. Visit mplsindiexpo.com for more info.
