The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is a week long celebration of comics and graphic novels and their creators, which culminates in a two-day exhibition and vendor fair featuring hundreds of comics creators from around the world at the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge Street). Seriously, it’s the best thing ever to happen in Toronto and I feel forever indebted to the people at The Beguiling who make it happen every year.
I’ll be part of a table at the weekend exhibition with my fellow SketchKrieg! illustrators, so please come by and say ‘hello.’ I’ll be selling The Dead Kid Detective Agency, the brand-new DOOM: Love Poems for Supervillains, the also-brand-new SketchKrieg! Paper Trail collaborative comic book and more. I’ll also be sheepishly apologizing for not having the new Quarter-Life Crisis book done yet. (My new joke: ‘By the time I’m done, I’ll have to change the name to Mid-Life Crisis.’)
Even if you don’t say ‘hello,’ just go to this. It’s an incredible comics event. More information can be found at torontocomics.com.
