CAKE loves mini-comics so much we want to punch them! Mini’s are where so many of us begin and continue to work, and in many ways, the mini-comic is the backbone of a successful comic expo. In an effort to encourage people to buy and explore mini-comics at our show, CAKE is instituting a new program, our mini-comics incentive “punch card.”

When you arrive at CAKE, be sure to pick up one of our punch cards. When you buy a mini-comic from one of our exhibitors, you can ask them to add a sticker to your card (based on the value of the mini you just bought). Once you collected enough stickers, you can redeem it at the front info table for one of our historic posters by Laura Park, Jo Dery or Carrie Vinarsky

Be on the lookout for Debuts
& Mini-comics in low quantity!

Exhibitors will be displaying small signs to let you know their comic is debuting at CAKE, or that the mini-comic they have on their table is a rare one! Here’s the list of debuts CAKE knows about (who knows what bleary-eyed exhibitor will point to their comic and mumble “I finished copying this mini at five this morning”):
