a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo is taking place June 16 & 17th from 11am - 6pm at 1104 S Wabash (8th floor)!! This show will feature tons of self-publishers making really great minicomics (the comic book version of a zine, or the zine version of a comic book?), as well as graphic novels, anthologies, and prints, and it's taking place in the same spot as the Chicago Zine Fest & Printers Ball.
Some of the folks coming I think zinesters will be excited about are:
Lilli Carré, Jeffrey Brown, Anne Elizabeth Moore (and the LadyDrawers), Corinne Mucha, Anders Nilsen, Laura Park (who did the awesome poster above), John Porcellino, Julia Wertz, Trubble Club, Sparkplug Comic Books, Tugboat Press, Gabrielle Bell, Anna Bongiovanni, Krystal DiFronzo, Jim Donaldson, Sara Drake, Charles Forsman, Marnie Galloway, Nicole J.
