Zub at TCAF 2017!

It’s time for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, a wonderful FREE event celebrating comics taking place at the Toronto Reference Library and select satellite locations on May 13th and 14th. I’m part of the big Image Comics 25th Anniversary Celebration crew who will be set up at the Masonic Temple (888 Yonge Street), a 2 minute walk up the road from the Reference Library:

I’ll be set-up at TABLE MT10 alongside Djibril Morissette-Phan, my collaborator on GLITTERBOMB. We’ll be there with plenty of great books…

…and I’ll be on several panels as well:

12:15pm – The D&D Panel – Dungeons & Dragons!
The infamous tabletop RPG was controversial in the 80s and shunned by the mainstream, but now it’s back and more popular than ever! Join Jim Zub, Koren Shadmi, Ben Marra, Hannah Fisher, Megan Carter, and Tory Woollcott as they discuss what drew them to the gaming table and how D&D has inspired their comic storytelling.
LOCATION: Forest Hill Ballroom, Marriott Bloor-Yorkville

4:00pm – Image 25th: Glitterbomb vs. Monstress—Terrifically Terrifying Comics
Few things are as horrific as real horror! Few things are as felt as true feelings! So how do you convey both of those things in comics? Join the teams behind the terrific and terrifying MONSTRESS (Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda) and GLITTERBOMB (Jim Zub and Djibril Morrissette-Phan) on how they go about imbuing their stories and characters with real emotion, while also scaring your pants off.
LOCATION: Masonic Temple, 888 Yonge St

12:00pm – Image 25th: Finding a Balance
Day jobs. Everybody’s got one. But how do you go about paying the bills while creating hit creator-owned comics? How do you make sure you have enough creative energy for both? Marjorie Liu, Jim Zub, Ivan Brandon, and Jason Latour are no strangers to balancing projects they do for others and projects the do for themselves. Come and hear how they try to make it work.
LOCATION: Masonic Temple, 888 Yonge St

If you live in the greater Toronto area, you really need to come to TCAF! It’s one of my favorite shows each year, jam-packed with incredible guests from all over the world, tons of stunning art, engaging programming, and so much more.
