The reading at Quimby’s was freaking packed! I think Amber was reading when I took this picture. Can you see her? I can’t either…but check out her blog for way more detailed Chicago zinefest love.

Will the owner of this bearded lady tattoo please come forward to be showered with eternal love and affection?
I came home with a suitcase full of zines! Other people’s zines! Not the ones I came with!
As you can see, I fail at taking pictures. But I had a lot of fun despite returning with some kind of horrible disease that has left me bedridden since. Fail! In any case, so much love and thanks to my host Robin Banx and friends, to all those lovely zinesters near and far, especially those who traded zines with me, and to Milo and Chris from QZAP and their friends who fed me oh so good.
i PROMISE a comix update soon. SOON!
