Welcome to Denver!
The McNichols Civic Center Building is located at the northwest corner of Civic Center Park, at the intersection of Colfax and Bannock. In 1909, the cornerstone of the building was laid, setting the foundation for the then Carnegie Library that would become a center of learning in the park. That tradition continues, as the building was re-opened in 2012 as a contemporary hub for arts and culture for the people of Denver.
Denver's Only Indie Comics Show
"There’s a lot more to comics than men in tights, but you’d never know it at most comic cons. If you want to dig deeper into what comics can be, regardless of what kind of story they’re telling, then DINK: The Denver Independent Comic and Art Expo is your kind of con."
"Have you grown fatigued of DC and Marvel mania? You’ll find the remedy at this nerd-centric spectacle, featuring 250 comic geniuses, illustrators, and even tattoo artists"
"Hipper and more underground than its better-known antecedent, DiNK focuses on urban art, zines and small-press publishers"
"It's Like Denver Comic Con For The Counterculture"
"With a wide variety of exhibitors and speakers, DiNK's focus on diversity draws artists of all kinds to share their experiences, their works and their insight."
"DINK has positioned itself as the cool older brother of comic cons. Look, we all love superheroes, so by this we mean no offense. But if most comic cons are the pop-culture equivalent of an overexcited kid running around the house with a blanket-cape tied around his or her neck, jumping off the couch and yelling BIFF! BAM! KAPLOOIE!...then DINK is the awesome older sib with tattoos who lives in the basement and has mad art skilz"
