Neil Brideau draws comics and runs RADIATOR COMICS in Chicago, IL!
From 2009 – 2015, Neil worked at Quimby’s Bookstore, an epicenter for self-publishing, where his favorite job was dealing with the store’s MASSIVE (and open) consignment system. In 2010 Neil started the Chicago Zine Fest (CZF) with three friends (two of whom are distributed by Radiator Comics). Neil remained an organizer of CZF until 2012, when he co-founded the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE)! Though no longer a core-organizer of CAKE, Neil remains an Exhibitor Services Coordinator & helps with the organization’s non-profit work.
When Neil has free time, he loves to cook food, ride his bicycle, watch PBS’s Washington Week, check out the latest performance by The Tim and Micah Project, listen to They Might Be Giants, and root for the Chicago Outfit, and the Chicago Red Stars.
