Free and open to the public, CAKE is returning for a third year to celebrate the diverse community of underground and alternative comic artists, publishers and fans in Chicago. Comics, prints and artwork will be available for purchase, including debut works from 200+ local, national and international art exhibitors. This year, over 30% of the exhibitors are local Chicagoland-area artists.

"CAKE has become a destination festival for alternative comics in the Midwest. We're really excited that CAKE has begun to expand its draw beyond the region while still representing Chicago's rich comics community," says Grace Tran, CAKE organizer. "This year, we have guests coming from the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada and over 23 states."

The expo offers a live forum, fostering around the underground comics community and will include original artwork for purchase, workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions and special guests, including Tony Millionaire ( Los Angeles, CA ), Anya Davidson ( Chicago, IL ), Inés Estrada ( Mexico City ), Edie Fake ( Chicago, IL ), Lizz Hickey ( Los Angeles, CA ), Hellen Jo ( Los Angeles, CA ), and Nobrow Books ( London, UK ).

Independent publishers such as 2D Cloud ( Minneapolis, MN ) Colour Code ( Toronto ), Fantagraphics Books ( Seattle, WA ), Koyama Press ( Toronto ), Press Gang ( Portland, OR ), Secret Acres ( Brooklyn, NY ), Sparkplug Comic Books ( Portland, OR ), Top Shelf Books ( New York ) Uncivilized Books ( Minneapolis, MN ), Lumpen Magazine ( Chicago, IL ) and Yeti Press ( Chicago, IL ).

The weekend expo kicks off with off-site programming in association with the weekend festivities.
