Tablemates Zak Sally and Noah Van Sciver
So, my last big show until the fall -- CAKE 2014. In only its third year, CAKE feels like a well oiled and FUN comics festival. So many people make the trip out, and Chicago itself has such a remarkable comics scene, that the whole thing feels like a family reunion. Add to that the laid back Midwestern vibe and you've got a winner.
Saturday I spent a bunch of time wandering around and saying hi to people; Sunday I stayed at my table and when I was away I ran around quickly picking up great comics.
