Dean Haspiel and Warren Bernard Bringing Indie Comics to the Library of Congress!

On the Friday before Small Press Expo, a celebrated independent comics publication show in Bethesda, Maryland, Dean Haspiel addressed the public at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, in conversation with Small Press Expo guru Warren Bernard. Bernard had helped arrange Haspiel’s donation of more than 600 mini comics to the Library of Congress and this donation will form part of an ongoing collection. It was an historic day for comics, and an impressive event. Many of the comics creators already in town for the Expo took the opportunity to take a tour of some of the great comic art preserved in the LoC also.
