We’re excited to participate in the first-ever Zine Not Dead Fest! This event brings together comics and small press artists and publishers from around the world to Chicago. The fest is free and open to the public, featuring over 80 exhibitors, engaging panels with our artists, and hands-on workshops. Our illustrious illustrator Stephon Doby is gracing this first-of-a-kind fair as a featured artist and panelist! From 1 - 2 pm, Steph will be joined by three fellow Project Onward heavyweights: Bill Douglas, Cherylle Booker, and Louis DeMarco for a panel discussing their work thoughts on the creative process, storytelling, and neurodiversity.

The evening's Zine Not Dead reading will be ticketed and feature our Stephon Doby debuting Alter Gender #1, his comic exploring themes of adolescence, gender identity, and community. The story follows the students of Texas Valley (go possums!) as they navigate the social minefield of high school, but when they wake up one day with completely different genders, they must learn to adapt or face disaster. 

Unfold this tale and many more from other talented storytellers at the show! Tickets available here:
