Hey, it’s been a long, hard winter and a nearly-as-long, hard spring. But I’m whackin’ away at King-Cat 79, and still hoping to have it out in time for CAKE in a few weeks ! Maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t. I’m getting too old and tired to really worry about it anymore.
Might as well post about some upcoming stuff.
Foist of all, this weekend is Chicago Zine Fest. Tomorrow, Friday May 17 (which is also King-Cat’s 30th Birthday !), I’ll be participating in ZINE JEOPARDY at Cards Against Humanity Theatre, 1551 W. Homer St. in Bucktown, 9 PM.
Then Saturday May 18th is tabling from 11-6 at the Plumber’s Union Hall, 1340 W Washington Blvd.
CAKE is June 1-2 this year, at the usual spot. If I manage it I’ll have KC79 on hand. If not, it’ll be out shortly thereafter, sometime in June.
Other stuff coming out in 2019 includes two standalone zines,
The Collected Prairie Pothole
, gathering all the stories (click here to read them online) for my short-lived :( weekly strip in the Chicago Reader (including three unpublished strips), and
, collecting three short holiday-themed comics, due out by the end of the year.
