This June brings Chicago's Alternative Comics Expo — an entire weekend dedicated to Chicago's independent comics scene. There will be tons of delicious comis for sale, informative workships and panel discussions, eye-candy exhibitions, and more. Our very own Chester Brown will be in attendance as part of his Mary Wept Tour! And Chicagoan Nick Drnaso will also be on hand to sign your copies of Beverly.
CAKE takes place Saturday, June 11th and Sunday, June 12th from 11am - 6pm at Center on Halsted, 3656 N Halsted Ave. The entire event is free, and you will find Drawn & Quarterly at tables 30-32 near the entrance.
