As consolation for another year passing without a festival, Short Run has published The Short Run Comix & Arts Festival Catalog, which features 40 new releases from WA State comic artists, authors, and zinesters, ads for small print and publishing businesses, plus DIY projects and local stores. This free, 16-page newsprint catalog, designed by Jacob Covey, will be mailed all across the US. You can request a free catalog clicking here.

Short Run Comix & Arts Festival at Seattle Center features book artists from the Pacific Northwest and around the world who make indie commix and self-published, small press, and handmade books of all kinds. Short Run transcends the commercial “comic-con” model by enhancing the festival with interactive experiences, special guests, and collaborative and experiential programming; by highlighting the works of women, people of color, LGBTQ+ artists, and artists with disabilities; and by featuring books that exist outside of mainstream media, such as zines about Japanese psych rock, sex transitioning and identity, DIY and punk lifestyles; comics about illness and aging; handmade books that come with scavenged moss, are sewn with dental floss, or are composed of sheets of xeroxed paper stapled in the corner with a print run of 10. Free admission, donations gratefully accepted. More info: http://shortrun.org/
