Chicago is the perennial hotbed of indie comics and you can experience a weekend-long celebration of them at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE)! The second year of this talent-packed event is taking place at Center on Halsted this Saturday and Sunday and there will be comics for sale, workshops, exhibitions, and panel discussions. There are also a handful of associated signings and events around town starting tonight. Meet lots of comics luminaries in-person including Chris Ware, Kim Deitch, Lisa Hanawalt and Little Otsu artists Jo Dery (who did all the artwork for CAKE 2013), Lilli Carré (who curated a screening of experimental animation showing on Saturday at 3pm), Jeremy Tinder, and John Porcellino (with his Spit and a Half distro). And it's all free!
