Over the next few weeks, we’ll be featuring cartoonists who will exhibit at the Minneapolis Indie Xpo, an independent comic book festival happening on November 5-6, 2011, at The Soap Factory. This event is free and open to the public on both days from 10am-5pm. MIX features web cartoonists, self-published cartoonists, boutique publishers, and large publishing houses. Learn more about MIX exhibitors and programs.
Today we’ve got Daniel Olson who introduces himself like this: I am a straight-edge, mustachioed laden, indie comic artist residing in Nordeast Minneapolis with my wife, yet to be born child, cat, and a whole lot of books.
You can follow Daniel on Twitter.

All of the Winnie the Pooh books. . . not sure which I’m actually reading though, since my head is currently stuck in a pot of honey.

My first favorite book would be Green Eggs and Ham.
