The Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) is an annual event showcasing and celebrating indie comics creators in the New England area and beyond. Members of the New England Book Show committee will be in attendance and on the volunteer staff, although we, ourselves, are not exhibiting. The expo is free and open to the public, so you might also like to join us. If you run into us, say hello. And if you’re a local comics creator, we’d love to talk to you about submitting your work to the Book Show.
