There will be all of your favourite local authors with spankin new CHAPBOOKS! There will be all your favourite local comic artists with their COMIC BOOKS. Local ZINES? You bet. And ooh snap and we also have bunches of comics and zines and poetry from independent presses small and large to EXPLORE and discover the FRESHEST stuff all the way from Toronto to L.A.

We’ll be at the Book Fair selling The Corners of Their Mouth, our queer food zine; Robin’s latest solo zine Flora & Fauna: Anxious Human Field Notesa poignant and hilarious look at dealing with anxiety and depression with nature (not in the “yoga at sunrise” sense); and copies of Grab Back Comics, an anthology of comics about sexual assault for survivors to tell their own stories.

Once we get back, we’ll be putting the remainder of the Corners and Field Notes zines, as well as prints for the “gender reveal” cake and other art online for purchase. Link to follow!

Finally, I want to thank everyone who came by our booth. It was great to chat with you all and to meet other artists and creators. And special thanks to everyone who answered our question “What is the queerest food?”


From our queer kitchen to yours (especially if you’re in Idaho this weekend!),
