Back to basics

Hi! It’s Neil! We’re back with a new title, and this week it’s one I made. Last week was the 10th Chicago Zine Fest, an annual event I helped start back in 2010! I was honored to design this year’s CZF poster, and thought it was as good a time as ever to finally get over my fear of making a text-heavy zine…you know, a zine zine. So I wrote Demystifying Comics, which tries its best to encourage YOU to get over your fear of making a comic (or if you already make comics, to loosen up sometimes and not treat comics just as work)! I hope you dig it!

This weekend is the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, an annual event I helped start back in 2012! I’m sad that I’ll be missing it this year (it’s my last day teaching art class at the library), but Radiator Comics will have a table there! Table 402b will feature comics by four awesome artists who will each staff the table for a quarter of the weekend:

Marian Runk Saturday 11:00am – 2:30pm
Ashley Robin Franklin Saturday 2:30 – 6:00pm
Coco Picard Sunday 11:00am – 2:30pm
Dave Ortega Sunday 2:30 – 6:00pm

There will be 18 more artists Radiator Comics represents exhibiting!
