Indie Island 2008 - for posterity

(I saved the original HeroesCon page here on my blog for review purposes)

INDIE ISLAND!!
Like the most sweetest two-word poem you ever heard: Indie Island is 10,000+ square feet of the best of the indie and alternative comics world, located right at the heart of the coolest comics show in all the land. First launched in 2005, this year will be the fourth Indie Island at HeroesCon, and the biggest yet, with some of the biggest names in comics, mini-comics, webcomics, and publishing!
