Jenny King is the festival director of Autoptic, a two-day festival of independent culture featuring comics, music, zines, prints, and art. 

We discuss the challenges of her role as a spreadshet-loving organizer on a board full of creatives, Jenny justifies the existence of the event, and we geek out about why comic conventions in general and Autoptic in particular are just so darn great.

The next Autoptic is August 8-9, 2015.
