Megan James (BFA ’17) has attended the annual Small Press Expo among others to promote her comic book series, “Innsmouth.”
“Typically, someone will walk up to my booth, and I can see that they want to ask what the comic is about, so I try my best to connect with them and tell them a bit about the series. The premise of the story is pretty funny, so I usually get some laughs explaining it. At that point, if they’re into it, they’ll usually pick up an issue or two.”
