It’s pretty hard for me to contain my excitement with C2E2 coming up this weekend. I have panel schedules picked out and am excited about all the amazing people I’m going to meet. I will try my hand at live-blogging to keep you up to speed with all the fun I’m having. If you’re going to C2E2 this weekend, make sure to check out the Chicago Comics table where there will be a Jhonen Vasquez signing.
Speaking of Chicago Comics, you might remember that I did a review of Jason Poland’s Robbie and Bobby Mini-Comic last year. Well, now you can get the full Robbie and Bobby comic at Chicago Comics as well as its awesome sister store, Quimby’s.
And finally, sunday night I attended the Comic Art Battle Fundraiser at The Hideout, which benefited Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE). A fun time was had by all and I won two drawings from the battle that were up for auction.
Looking for something FREE and cool to do? Then check out the Chicago Zine Fest happening this weekend on the 9th and 10th. Chicago Zine Fest will highlight many talented self-published artists, and give artist a chance to interact with each other. Zine Fest will feature tons of informative workshops that are sure to appeal to everyone. And for you early risers I’ll be working at the info table. So make sure you stop by and say hello.
