The Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library is hosting its 4th annual Mini-Comics Day on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 10am to 6pm. Participants are challenged to write and draw a complete mini-comic within the span of a day.

What is Mini-Comics Day?
This event will challenge artists to complete a mini-comic within the span of a day. Artists may work alone or with others, and the mini-comic may be any number of pages.

What are mini-comics?
Mini-comics (or just 'minis') are hand-made, independently- or small press-published comics, covering any and all subjects and utilizing all forms of media. While many mini-comics are small in size (around 5.5" x 4.5"), the format is non-standard, and a mini can be anywhere from the size of a postage stamp to a full-sized newspaper. Materials and bindings can also vary, though many creators prefer the simplicity of black & white drawings or paintings which make it easier to reproduce and distribute their work.

Where and when is Mini-Comics Day happening?
Mini-Comics Day will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 10am-6pm. The Duderstadt Center, located on the University of Michigan’s North Campus, will host the event, which will be in room 1180.
Who can participate?
Anyone! This event is open to university students, staff, and the general public alike.

How do I sign up?

Registration is now closed. Look for the next Minicomics Day in early 2015! Space is limited, so sign up early to save your spot!

Do I need to bring my own supplies?
While there will be some limited supplies on hand, we encourage all participants to bring their own materials. There’s no requirement on what you use to make your comic— though you might want to keep reproduction in mind.

List and maps for places to purchase comic-making or general art supplies in the Ann Arbor area.

Why should I do this?
Because you like making comics. Because you want to work with other comic artists and swap minis. Because you've never made a minicomic before and want to know what all the fuss is about.

Also, did you know the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library in the Duderstadt Center has a (steadily growing) mini-comics collection? We'd love to have more representation from local artists, so this could be a great chance to get some of your work in our collection. If you have more questions about this special collection or would be interested in contributing your own mini-comic(s), you can contact Dave Carter at the AAEL.
