Zine and Indie Comic Symposium 2017

Three days of zine-based fun.

If your idea of a great stint of reading involves zines, indie comics, self-published mags and local art, then there's only one place to be between August 18 and 20. For the fifth year, Brisbane's Zine and Indie Comic Symposium takes over The Edge at the State Library of Queensland, showcasing the wonderful world of independent publishing.

Well, actually, there's three places to be. ZICS' main attraction might be its annual fair and market — complete with guest panels, workshops and enough indie reading material to keep you covered until next year's event rolls around — but that's not all that's on offer. Think boozy pen-and-paper sessions and dinner on a boat.

The fun kicks off on Friday night with ZICS' annual Drink 'n' Draw Pub Scrawl, which will take the tipples, chatter and sketches on a crawl between Betty's Espresso & Bar, Brisbane Brewing Co. and The Bearded Lady. Then, after a full Saturday spent getting your symposium on, jump onboard the ZICS Boat for a zine launch, mixtape exchange, the Golden Stapler Awards, readings, pop-up speed portraits and a meal, all for $25.
