Now with program schedule!
SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival 2006 will be held on
Saturday November 4th 2006
At Al Matta Hall
5121 Oakman Blvd.
In response to the overwhelmingly positive reception of the Dearborn’s
first creators only convention back in October 2005, organizers have
set the date of Saturday November 4th for SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival 2006. “Last year we set out to prove that a small press comic event could be
successful in the Detroit area.” says event coordinator Dan Merritt,
“And creators and attendees alike gave us so many favorable reviews
that we knew SNAP! had to be repeated.” The second annual “SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival” will be held at
Al Matta Hall 5121 Oakman in Dearborn, Michigan. The one day
event starts at 10am and runs until 6pm, with an intermission from 2-3pm
featuring live music from local musicians. The Al Matta grill will be cooking
up some great food, and the panels and workshops will be held within arms
reach of the Al Matta bar. Comics, creators, music, food and beer!
Was success ever in doubt? Plans are still coming together, so check back often for guest and program
listing as well as advertising opportunities.
The Pre-SNAP! Party will be held Friday November 3rd at

Katie and Dan Merritt owners of Green Brain Comics in Dearborn MI,
are proud to announce a showcase for small press
and self-published comic creators in the Midwest.
SNAP! The Comic Arts Festival.
“We have been traveling out of state to attend small press comic conventions since we bought our store in 1999. And after each show, we return home with a van full of great comics and more excitement about the art form of comics than we can contain. My partner Katie and I have been so inspired by other shows like SPACE in Columbus OH and SPX in Bethesda MD, we decided to have a our very own small press show in the Detroit area!” says Dan Merritt, “Michigan is home to a host of self-publishing comic creators, and we have created SNAP! to help connect them with a new audience right here in their own backyard”The goal of SNAP! is to showcase local, self-published and small press comic creators. By doing this we hope to build community for independent creators and encourage communication between creators and their potential audience, all while having a great time in the hometown of Henry Ford, Dearborn Michigan.SNAP!
