Independent Comics & Art Expo
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, DiNK sources 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.
