I recently drove out to Cambridge, Massachusetts to talk with Dan Mazur; he's a founding member of the Boston Comics Roundtable and the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE), as well as a comic creator and historian. We recorded in a basement stairway of the Cambridge Public Library, so please excuse the hum. We talked about pulling together the comics community of Boston, where indie and webcomics exist in a historical context, and some great comics that have come out of the group.
There's a lot more to this episode, including some discussion on various other independent comics expos, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library in Columbus, Ohio, and even a brief run-in with a security guard because it seems we found our way to the wrong part of the library. For all that, and access to the full versions of every episode, simply head over to the Exploring Comics Patreon and pledge just $1 per episode. Any support helps bring these conversations to a wider audience and may even make it so that episodes don't need to come down from Soundcloud.
