Next weekend I'll be attending this year's Toronto Comic Art Festival, aptly located in Toronto, Ontario. I've been curious about this somewhat new convention for a while now; it has a hugely positive reputation among creators and the attending public (just like us), is run by a well-respected, pro-active comics store (us, too), and promotes appreciation of and participation in comics and the comics industry (that's so us!). Their guest list isn't too shabby either, including Darwyn Cooke, Paul Pope, James Jean, Chester Brown, Seth... et cetera. With any luck I'll be bringing back some guest list announcements for HeroesCon; but I'll definitely be up there promoting the show, hobnobbing, and generally trying not to embarass us in front of Canada, or pee myself while talking to Chester Brown. Wish me luck! For more info check out the TCAF site! Not to mention The Beguiling, the store that organizes the show--besides being a nice shop, they sell TONS of original art on their site.
