Comics Journalism: Your Life in Panel Form

With Free Comic Book Day on the horizon many of us are taking an extra look-see into the city's vibrant industry. There's quite a bit going on, but an interesting new venture is looking to find legs on Kickstarter right now.

The Illustrated Press: Chicago is a journalistic endeavor that fuses accurate reporting with the panel visuals and narrative style of comics. The duo behind the Chicago-centric publication produced two features for Gapers Block last year, and is still looking for a hefty chunk of change to fund a publishing project that aims to bring together some of the best stories from 2011 in a single bound volume. Four days to go!
