What to do next, for someone who's written and drawn a graphic novel?

A friend of mine has almost finished a graphic novel about a dystopian sci-fi future . It's quite good. But he's never published anything before. What should he do to get his work published? What should he expect? What are the resources for self-publishing comics? Any other advice he should hear?

What's the best way to show work to publishers at SPX?

What's the best way of showing my work to publishers at Small Press Expo? I have a portfolio of dozens of medium-sized narrative drawings from which I'd like to pick 10-12 to show. Is it best to e-mail ahead before the event to reserve time? To go to the event and ask when they'd be free to review them? I know how busy the SPX floor can get on a Saturday afternoon, so I'd like to hear from those who've tried there, at other shows and in general.
