This means a lot. Thank you to those who voted us Best Comic Book and thanks to all Canadian-indie-comic book-loving fans without whom, books like ours wouldn’t leave the printing house. If interested in learning all the results of the 2018 Canadian Independent Comic Book Wiki Awards, check out the premier issue of Sequential Magazine, which also includes a very nice write-up of Group of 7 issues #1-3.

WhitCAF (Whitby, ON) – November 17, 2018

Back where it all began. Back at Whitby Library for WhitCAF, the first ever comics event to feature Group of 7. Since that special Saturday in November of ‘17, we’ve taken part in comics events and festivals in Peterborough, Markham, Guelph and Mississauga but Whitby will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Always fun seeing old friends and making new ones. We were humbled the Library chose to feature us in their display case sandwiched between a Green Lantern power battery and a seminal Batman book.

MET A FREAKIN’ JAWA!

Vocamus Press 5th Annual Book Bash (Guelph, ON) – October 14, 2018

This was our second Book Bash go-around and this show is always a great time. I get to walk from my house and talk comics with locals on a leisurely Sunday accompanied by Wellington Brew and shawarma. Can’t go wrong. For two years running we’ve been the only comic book on offer amongst a sea of local releases. Some repeat customers came by to pick up Issue #2 while I had the opportunity to support the creative endeavours of others who have supported our book. Good people. Good event.

The Dragon 20th Anniversary mini-con (Guelph, ON) – September 15, 2018

Jason took the reins solo at this event to help celebrate The Dragon, it’s excellent employees and amazing owners, Jenn and Robert Haines. Perhaps the highlight was hanging out with new friends (and incredibly talented local illustrators and creators) Scott Chantler, Jay Stephens, Nick Craine and Scott Mooney. Good eggs, all of them and you should buy their stuff. Jason also sold two posters (our first!) to local Group of 7 fan Robert and found time to ink (with a brush assist from Chantler) A few pages of Group of 7 #3.
