Hey guys! So CAKE, the Chicago Alt Comics Expo is just around the bend! I’ve enclosed a map so you can find your FAVOURITE COMIC MAKERS EVER, Friendship Edition, where me (Kat) and Gillian B. will have a table with all kinds of books and prints.
At said table, you will be able to purchase the first issue of MEAT&BONE in print, and will be the SECOND ISSUE the monthly mini, TOWERKIND! “Feature Creature” sticker sets (ALL 3 VARIETIES!), a variety of prints, and the newly-launched H.P. Lovecraft Fan Art Book, “Puffed Shoggoths”, as well as the also new “Moon Power” Sailor Moon art zine, and loads of other comics.
June 15 & 16 Center on Halsted 3656 N Halsted
A Toronto based collective of illustrators, cartoonists and zinesters.
Friends! Are you in Chicago? Check out my buddies at Friendship Edition this coming weekend at CAKE! They will have all of that snazziness listed above AND ALSO they are being saints and bringing a few convention-edition By Croms with them! They will DEFINITELY be worth checking out.
Awww heck yeah! Chicagoians (?!) you need to pop by and say HEY! I will be there in spirit, if not in actual meat-form! We will be peddling our awesome wares, just for YOU!
VANCAAAAAAAAAF! OH MAN. Vancouver I am coming for your comics this weekend!! I will be tabling beside the excellent Kris Sayer, who is bringing her spooky Viking ghost story, Corpse Door, which I am PUMPED to get my hands on, and I have helpfully labelled our table on that map up there!
I will be bringing the limited run Convention Edition of the collected By Crom, (only 25 are being made! I’m gonna number them!) and pens and pencils to draw all over your copy, should you grab one. I will also have Conan paper dolls sold separately in little plastic bags, ready to colour and cut out and conquer! I also have 8 Volume 1 zines, so claim yours now if you want it! And one more illustration-puppet-build-your-own kit as well, so keep your eyes peeled! It’ll be practically neon so you would probably have trouble missing it…
So, yeah, a pile of limited edition and con-exclusive content is about to drop on you, Vancouver, and I need to move as much as I can so I can take all of your comics back home with me! Especially Rebecca Dart’s work. Just sayin’.
See you in, uh, holy crap, TWO DAYS?! SEE YOU IN TWO DAYS, VANCOUVER.
Not only will Rachel be at VANCAF selling her 100% quality BY CROM goodies, but some Friendship Edition folks will be sending some copies of our zines with her! So if you have a pressing need to read about a normal 14 year old boy getting dumped on by the Universe, then losing his shit, pick up a copy of my mini-comic DESTROY THE UNIVERSE! They will not be expensive, and you can colour them in yourself!
