Comics Experience at C2E2 2018!

This year’s C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) will be a special one for us: the event, April 6-8, marks the launch of our four brand-new titles published in partnership with Source Point Press!

To mark the occasion, Comics Experience creators will be present at Source Point’s booth throughout the weekend. We’ll be selling copies of Achilles, Inc.The Family GravesGrief, and Wretched Things; participating in signings, and answering questions about all that Comics Experience has to offer.

In addition to our presence at the Source Point booth, we’ll be participating in several panels, listed below. Mark your calendars and join us for some fun, informative discussions!

Our panels include:
