TGISPOC: Weekend Events & More


It’s finally March and it’s finally the weekend. Here’s what SPOCsters will be up to:


Ninety-Seven to Three Release Party @ Uncharted Books, 7 p.m. Back to Print is, well back to print again. The book-loving group is back with another release party featuring readers and music by Tyler Bagwell and others.


CAKE LGBTQ Showcase @ Red Line Tap, 9:30 p.m. Chicago’s own alternative comics expo brings a host of performances and artwork.

Keep your calendar free for CHICAGO ZINE FEST on Saturday, March 9 from 11-6p.m at the Conaway Center at Columbia College. SPOC will be slinging its wares and participating in the Zine Scene workshop. Did you miss out on getting a table this year? No sweat. We’re happily hawking SPOCster’s zines at our table. Keep in mind when pricing that SPOC gets 25% of the cover price of all zines sold at our table to further our mission of zineitude. Contact selfpublishersofchicago@gmail for info or to volunteer for a tabling slot.


Post-Heat Wave Meeting @ LAYDEEZ DO COMICS this Thursday


How about this weather, amirite? Well, things will be Chicago-cold once again by Thursday but huddle together with us between the hallowed shelves at Quimby’s for the first LAYDEEZ DO COMICS event at 7 p.m. It’s a new monthly series of women comic artists. Wowzers. Hang with us then grab a post-event slice or drink over at Santullo’s where we’ll be drawing, writing, hanging and what not.
