The webcomics blog about webcomics


Kindly allow me to point you towards some words of note, then get the hell out of Dodge for the weekend.

From Christopher Butcher, mad genius Kit Kat enthusiast and TCAF showrunner, a wrap-up of this year’s show:

TCAF 2011 was our third annual show, and our third year partnering with [the Toronto Public Library], and it was clearly another successful partnership. TCAF at Toronto Reference Library reinforces the core ideals of the Festival: that it’s a free event, that it’s about the books, and that it is open to everyone—not just the comics initiated. While I think all involved agreed that the library was more than a little crowded at times on Saturday afternoon, it never stopped having a great, friendly vibe and an amazing energy. Those are the reasons that we partner with Toronto Public Library, and those are the reasons that we’re going to be working together again in 2012.

There’s no TCAF without great creators and works of art to celebrate, and so we’d like to thank all of the cartoonists, publishers, writers, artists, and other agencies that took the time to exhibit and present at TCAF 2011. This was our most diverse and international fest yet, with creators from 12 different countries around the world presenting a variety of idiosyncratic worldviews through the comics medium.

… and important dates for next year’s:

TCAF 2012 will be continue to occur at Toronto Reference Library and The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon — and now it comes down to when. After much discussion internally and with TPL staff, we’ve decided that TCAF 2012 will occur on Saturday May 5 and Sunday May 6, 2012. Exhibitor Applications for 2012 will open on Monday, August 1st at

That’s all. Enjoy the hell out of your weekend.
