'Square City Comics' is a self-publishing comic (graphic novel, web comic, etc.) group based in the greater Washington, DC area. We are a handful of artists and writers who meet at least once a month to discuss our projects, characters, ideas, problems, etc. Though we each move at our own paces, we are all dedicated to making comics. Our sessions are a productive and positive place to share issues and get regular feedback. The ultimate goal is to help each other self-publish our own projects and provide regular opportunities for discussion and collaboration. We have appeared at SPX twice and have brought out 8 books since our inception.

Typically we meet in NW DC, near the Van Ness/UDC (Red Line) metro stop, but we also road trip to different conventions and comic events up and down the East Coast and beyond. Get in touch if you are creating your own sequential art and tired of toiling away in solitude!

You can learn more about us over at our main website Squarecitycomics.com.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
