CAKE 2014

The car is packed, and I'm preparing to take the long way to CAKE, the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo. CAKE has been around now for 3 glorious years, and we've been there since it's inception. It's a great show, so many talented and wonderful people gathered together under one roof!

We'll be setting up shop at table 25, surrounded by some of the best people in the biz: Jo Dery will be holding down the Pegacorn Press table to our right, and Walker and Julia will have the full power of the Providence Comics Consortium on display to our left.

Come visit us, Chicago!

TCAF 2014

This weekend, the Hidden Fortress Press will be heading north of the border to visit our friends in Toronto! The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is a "week long celebration of comics and graphic novels and their creators" that has been ongoing for 11 years now. We will have a table set up at the vendor fair on Saturday and Sunday on the first floor of the Toronto Reference Library; come visit us at Table 128, which we'll be sharing with Walker Mettling and his PCCMichael Deforge, and Leslie Stein, and sitting in between Tom Devlin and his Drawn and Quarterly crew and the Pigeon Press table. It's a pretty sweet gig! Here's a map if you'd like to visit:

TCAF will be hosting a ton of fantastic programming all week, but if you're in town and feeling adventurous, on Saturday night the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto will be playing host to an epic showdown between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, a "Global War", if you will. It's a stacked card, featuring some of the best in the indy/international wrestling scene. I'm psyched about the matchup between "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin and Taakaki Watanabe!

On that note, it seems appropriate to show off a couple more preview pages from SCREWJOB, the Pro Wrestling anthology we are putting together. Here's a page from Pat Aulisio's fantastic Goldust comic:

and a page from Lale Westvind's epic tale, the Return of Wild Wanda!
