In late 2012, a group of Twin Cities based cartoonists and publishers began planning for what was to become AUTOPTIC's inaugural show the following year. Rather than creating “just another comics/ graphics festival”, we chose to take a giant step forward into the bigger, messier world of independent culture at large. To accomplish this we showcased not only cartoonists and zinesters, but also poster artists, printmakers, musicians, alternative & small labels, illustrators, designers, and more, ranging from the exclusively local to the internationally acclaimed. At its core, AUTOPTIC is a juried, expo-style show, but orbiting the expo are readings and talks, artist showcases, and music events, held both at Aria and several other sites throughout Minneapolis.
