Saturday April 16 join us for CHICAGO ZINE FEST NOT DEAD, a CZF2016 fundraiser presented by our friends Bred Press and Perfectly Acceptable Press at the International School of Comics (1651 W Hubbard St).

You’ll be entertained by an illustrious group of Chicago comics artists:
Keiler Roberts
Kevin Budnik
Jessica Cadwell & Griffin Miller
Paul Reilly
Chloe Graham
and our very own CZF organizer Alex Nall

The evening will be hosted by the ignominious Brad Rohloff and Matt Davis. The show starts at 7 pm—it’s just $5 to help support this year’s zine fest, which gets you admission, a free poster, and the chance to win a prize!
