This upcoming weekend cartoonists and publishers from around the world will flock to the Center on Halsted for the 5th Annual Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE). A book I’m really looking forward to picking up is Accursed: A Collection of Texts from Excavated Curse Tablets Made in Ancient Greece and Rome drawn up by Portland-based artist Daria Tessler. This is the second book that Perfectly Acceptable has printed of Daria’s work and the risograph is a perfect fit for her smooth, magical graphic drawings.

More of Daria’s work can be seen on her Instagram. CAKE is Saturday and Sunday, June 10th and 11th, from 11 am – 6 pm at the Center on Halsted (3656 N Halsted Ave). Special Guests this year include Gary Panter, Emil Ferris, and Ron Regé Jr.
