DINK Independent Comic & Art Expo 2018

Denver’s Award Winning Independent Comics and Art Expo unleashed an impressive lineup for the 2018 Convention including Joe Kelly, Jeff Lemire, James O’Barr, Matt Kindt, Howard Cuse, Chuck Forsman plus locally grown Steve T Seagle, Amy Reeder and rising star Karl Christian Krumpholz among nearly 200 featured guests and exhibitors in Downtown Denver at the McNichols Civic Center this April 14-15.  An extraordinary roster of the talent with more announcements expected through February, two-day passes are now available for purchase at dinkdenver.com

The artist-centric event of the year, DiNK is a celebration of independent artists, writers, creators, zine makers and publishers encompassing nearly three floors of entertainment, panel discussions, craft sessions, adult coloring, art auctions, comedy shows and the Mountain-West’s first Comic and Art Awards ceremony ‘The DINKy’s.’

Sophisticated yet never dull, the event has a knack for finding talent that has both wit and grit, with topics ranging from social justice to the antisocial and everything in between. More than art, displayed works include published books, manuscripts, zines, paintings and graphic novels. DINK provides an outlet for a talented cast of independent artists, creators, urban and tattoo artists, zine creators and graphic novelists to showcase their work for two days in the Mile High City each representing the counter-culture and the independent spirit of art in its many languages and styles.

For 2-day passes, VIP upgrades and additional experiential ticketing opportunities check out DinkDenver.com.
