Short Run Comic & Arts Festival 2014

It’s time again! The 4th annual Short Run Comix & Arts Festival will be taking place on the 15th of this month. Short Run is one of the northwest’s premier book exhibitions celebrating the community of independent zine makers, artists, publishers and animators here and around the world. With exciting events taking place all week (including one here at Elliott Bay) this is going to be a special year. John Porcellino will be in attendance, along with a handful of international publishers and artists to spice things up a bit. Details on everything Short Run this year below.
