The Small Press Expo has finalized the lineup for The Expo 2000 anthology. It is to be made up of 60 short comics stories, plus interviews and essays, totaling more than 352 pages, all for $6.95. As always, all profits from this book go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF). If previous editions are anything to go on, this will be an entertain showcase of the wide range of material on offer in the small press medium.

This year it will include 40 pages never before available in English from the founding members of the French collective L'Association, as well as submissions from as far away as Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Australia.

The Expo 2000 anthology is scheduled for release in August, and can be ordered from us her at SBS from our online catalogue or by contacting one of our Customer Service Reps. The SPX publishers emphasized that this will be a limited print run, so definitely order to avoid disappointment.
