MICE, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, is the Boston area’s only event dedicated to the exciting and accessible art form of indie comics and graphic novels. MICE holds its annual expositions at Lesley University’s Porter Square campus. Comics are where language and images meet, and independent comics explore the full potential of that medium: fiction, action, memoir, history, humor and more. During MICE, hundreds of indie comics artists and small press publishers exhibit their creations, and thousands of attendees from the Greater Boston area turn out to meet them. MICE has grown steadily in size and scope since its beginnings in 2010, always maintaining free admission to the public. Students, families, educators, and art enthusiasts alike return to this event year after year to connect with this vital local arts scene.
Volunteers Needed! MICE looks for local volunteers to help make our annual showa success. We schedule 2-hour shifts for roles like Greeters, Show Floor Attendants, as well as Panel and Workshop Assistants throughout the weekend – leaving plenty of time to walk around and enjoy the show!
