This past weekend saw the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo roll out, a much anticipated foray into the CAF circuit for one of the biggest markets in the US. If you look at the debuts,l the comics were vibrant and exciting. Last year’s show was good but had room to grow, so we’re eager for reports on this one. It’s hard to find the social media reports for CAKE, but the few there were seemed enthusiastic. Here are pictures from Jason Leivian. It looks like there was a good crowd.
Of course, it won’t be over until Secret Acres reports on it.
In the meantime, here are some pages from books that debuted:
