Vocamus Press Writers’ Community Genre Fiction Group presentation at McLaughlin Library (Guelph, ON) – March 3, 2019

Thanks so much to the Genre Fiction Group for the invitation to discuss writing comic books, historical inspiration and self-publishing today. You gave me 20 minutes and in classic me fashion, I spoke for an hour and a half. But to be fair, I did check in more than once and no-one seemed bothered about the time spent talking Group of 7 or the hero’s journey or pacing or story structure or archives or reddit or the evocative and emotional nature of history. Community groups (whether fiction writers or comic book creators) are such necessary cogs in their related machines, providing spaces for support, expertise, insight and sharing. Thanks for including me in yours today.

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!
