PRETTY DARK TALES will be at SPX 2018!

Pretty Dark Tales will be exhibiting at the Small Press Expo on September 15-16, 2018 in Bethesda, Maryland (near Washington, DC).

PDT’s home base is in DC, and we attend SPX every year to buy indie comics and zines. We feel lucky and honored to be exhibiting with such talented writers and artists!

PDT will have hand-bound comics, zines, journals, mini-books, and book-lover freebies  for all the horror and dark fantasy fans out there. Can’t wait!

Hope to see you there,

Lynn Novella
