This Weekend: TCAF 2013!


This weekend in Toronto is the 10th annual Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF)!

Edwin and I will be exhibiting both days at TABLE 211 on the 2nd floor and I’ll have copies of Skullkickers, Pathfinder and Makeshift Miracle there for sale.

Best of all, TCAF is completely FREE to attend! If you live in the Greater Toronto Area there’s no reason not to swing by and be inspired by the creators and programming lined up.


I’m also involved with two panels being run over the weekend, both off site:

Comics vs Games: Narrative Intersections
Featuring Scott C., Bryan Lee O’Malley, Ben Rivers, Jim Zub, Moderator Miguel Sternberg
1:00pm – 2:30pm
@ Bit Bazaar, Bento Miso, 862 Richmond Street West (Queen & Strachan)

A huge component of TCAF 2013 is our one-day, off-site BIT BAZAAR! An exhibition of more than 20 indy game developers and studios, with games, art, and crafts that mix comics, games, and narrative. At the center of the event is this special presentation featuring some of the greatest names in the comics & games crossover! Scott C. (Doublefine, The Art of Brutal Legend), Bryan Lee O’Malley (Scott Pilgrim), Benjamin Rivers (Snow, Home), Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Street Fighter HD Remix), and Moderator Miguel Sternberg (They Bleed Pixels) will discuss the intersection between comics and games, how comics and games borrow from each other to tell stories. The participants will talk about their relationships with games, how they borrow and adapt ideas from games and comics into the other. A signing with book sales will follow!

Comics from an Author’s Perspective
2:45pm – 3:45pm
@ Fortuna Ristorante, 12 Cumberland St.

Creator-owned comics have grabbed the imagination of the comic-reading public and publishers are looking for fresh ideas from a new generation of talent. Listen closely as Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Street Fighter, Legends of the Dark Knight) discusses pitching his comic series to publishers and offers advice on how to climb to the top of the treacherous submission mountain, along with comic writing techniques and amusing anecdotes.
