Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, or CAKE is a free independent comic event. It is a weekend long event with workshops, panels, discussions, and a comics and art for sale. This year it happened at Center on Halsted located at 3656 N Halsted. The Center on Halsted is a LGBTQ community center, and the largest in the midwest. I had fun looking at all of the different art styles and all of the independent comics, debut or longer running. I didn’t attend any of the panels, but I still had fun looking around. It was pretty busy.
