MICE Returns October 17 – 18, 2015

We’re happy to announce that the sixth annual MICE will be held October 17 and 18 at Lesley’s University Hall in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA. MICE will once again feature workshops, panel discussions, and will welcome special guests and comic creators from New England and beyond.

Exhibit with us!

Exhibitor applications for MICE 2015 will be open from May 1 to May 18 at our web site

Of course we’d love it if everyone could exhibit at MICE, but our limited space means we have to be selective. Our combination curation and lottery process for tables is designed to create a showcase of new comics for the attendees in our local community year after year. We’ll make this as painless for you as possible, so review and read more on the application process at:

Thanks for reading, and good luck!

On Saturday March 21st Will Pottorff and Porter Mills Studios, Trypic Press and Adam Miller hosted Beverly Comic Con 2: Bigger, Badder, Nerdier. This was a great event showcasing some of the best local and regional talent. Montserrat’s Illustration students were there in full force selling their prints, mini-comics, stickers and various other goods. It was a great day and lots of fun. A huge thank you to Andrew Houle for getting us involved, to all the students that contributed goods and to students Kat Rosengarten, Sami Wyckoff, Sayyid Lestrade and Seb Sawyer for running the Montserrat Booth. We are all looking forward to next year already!
