We’re excited to announce Michael DeForge will be a special guest at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, June 15 & 16 2013!


Michael DeForge lives in Toronto and works as a cartoonist and illustrator. His series Lose is published annually by Koyama Press. His web strip Ant Comic is serialized weekly and will be collected into a graphic novel by Drawn and Quarterly upon its completion.
In the past few years, Michael’s work has become a massive presence in the world of underground comics, coupled with an inhuman yield of production in the worlds of illustration and animation. Michael’s work has a large following in Chicago, with his comics flying off the shelves at independent bookstores, and his presence was a highlight at CAKE last year. We’re very excited to have him involved.
We’ll be announcing more special guests in the next few weeks. CAKE’s application is open through January 1st. If you make alternative comics, we strongly encourage you to apply!Individual ApplicationSmall Press Publisher/Distro/Collective Application
