The 2009 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland, celebrated its 15th anniversary this year. As in years past, the conference was a treasure-trove for the comics fan and comics producer alike, with full slate of panels and more than 450 exhibitors of comic art. Turns out, you can overdose on comics. And on the free candy and cookies made available by the friendlier exhibitors. Here, an entirely subjective selection of highlights.
