You never know what you’ll find at SPACE. A new favorite. An old one. Multiple genres represented. People from the webcomics world. People who just do mini-comics. The show has creators just starting out. As well as creators who have been working on their craft for quite some time. Pro or amateur, the common thread is they’re all creating their own thing.
