CAKE 2014

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.

When Tony stood up he kept going.  Dude's like eight feet tall.

  1. Hi John! This is going to sound weird... the first picture at the top of the page shows a table full of books and comics. You wouldn't happen to know the title and author of the book at the bottom left-hand corner, next to the one titled "Petty Theft", would you? Thank you!
