Katie and Dan Merritt owners of Green Brain Comics in Dearborn MI,
“We have been traveling out of state to attend small press comic conventions since we bought our store in 1999. And after each show, we return home with a van full of great comics and more excitement about the art form of comics than we can contain. My partner Katie and I have been so inspired by other shows like SPACE in Columbus OH and SPX in Bethesda MD, we decided to have a our very own small press show in the Detroit area!” says Dan Merritt, “Michigan is home to a host of self-publishing comic creators, and we have created SNAP! to help connect them with a new audience right here in their own backyard”
The goal of SNAP! is to showcase local, self-published and small press comic creators. By doing this we hope to build community for independent creators and encourage communication between creators and their potential audience, all while having a great time in the hometown of Henry Ford, Dearborn Michigan.
SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival
