We wish we could wing our way over to Chicago for The Small Press & Comics Symposium and the Chicago Zine Fest as they both sound amazing! The Small Press & Comics Symposium is on Thursday from 4-8pm and has panelists for zines and comics (including Chris Ware!) and a special bonus that Lilli Carré did the poster for it!
The Chicago Zine Fest is Friday and Saturday and includes readings, exhibitors, workshops and even a DIY film festival that Lilli has a film in. Check their website for full listings and info: http://chicagozinefest.org
