Quimby’s is proud to help sponsor The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo [CAKE], which is a weekend-long celebration of independent comics, inspired by Chicago’s rich legacy as home to many of underground and alternative comics’ most talented artists– past, present and future. Featuring comics for sale, workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions and more, CAKE is dedicated to fostering community and dialogue amongst independent artists, small presses, publishers and readers.
Special guests this year include Collective Stench, Michael DeForge, Kim Deitch, Phoebe Gloeckner, Oily Comics, Charles Forsman, Melissa Mendes, Jason Shiga and more!
