If you’re in the Chicago area next weekend, here’s something the geeky dads may enjoy: The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo. (Yeah, I suppose it should really be “Komix” if they’re gonna use the acronym CAKE, but what can you do?) Here are the quick details, for you machines and bots who can’t interpret Jo Derry’s fun poster above:
Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE)
Saturday and Sunday, June 15 & 16, 2013
11 am – 6pm
Center on Halsted
3656 N Halsted

I’m unfortunately too far away, but they’ve got a great line-up of guests, including some of my favorites like Jason Shiga, Chris Ware, Lucy Knisley, and Aaron Renier. You can see the full list here.
