Miss the New Stuff Post last week? That’s because we were tabling at Chicago Zine Fest! A long-arm stapler thanks to Chicago Zine Fest, as well as everybody that came and visited us there, and especially to folks that came to “Ever Evolving Bastion of Freakdom: A Quimby’s Panel.” We are over the moon with what a great job CZF co-organizer Alex Nall did with moderating!
