Another photo...

Here is an outside shot of Ocean Gateway. It is right on the waterfront with plenty of free parking on site. It is within walking distance of Portland's Old Port. The view from the main room is of the harbor.

Maine Comics Arts Festival- 2009

We are planning the Maine Comics Arts Festival for Spring of 2009. We will announce the exact location and date in the very near future. It will be held in Portland.

This event will be a celebration of the comics art form. We expect to have dozen's of guests. This will be similar to events such as SPX and APE that are creator driven. That means that there will be no "dealers" set up at this show. Writers, artists and publishers are welcome.

Anyone interested in volunteering to help can e-mail . There will be plenty to do.

Much of the planning for this has been in the works for this for some time now. We know that the northeast has a very strong comics community, and Portland in particular has many creators. We plan on reaching out beyond just a regional show .

The to do list is growing, but hopefully we can get the registration information up soon. A new website for this is in the works. Keep posted to this blog for more information. Thanks!
