Hallowzine 2017

It’s our revered, hallowed tradition: Hallowzine! Back for a fifth year, Hallowzine lets you hear from some of Chicago’s best zine & comics artists telling you their creepiest, funniest, most Halloween-y stories.  Just a $5 donation to Chicago Zine Fest will get you in to hear great artists and enter our door prize raffle with fabulous prizes!

The fright night of ghoulish performers includes:
a zine reading by Jack Murphy,
video presentation by Jade Beach,
comics from Bianca Xunise,
and the musical comedy stylings of Fresh2Death.

Costumes are encouraged! RSVP on our Facebook event!
