Created back in 2016 by cartoonist David Ziggy Greene, Andy Oliver of Broken Frontier and Amneet Johal of Alternative Press, Small Press Day was designed to support the DIY and self-publishing comics scene of the UK. On the day, shops all over the country take part by hosting their own special events and highlighting their local small press talent.
