Third time’s a charm for Group of 7 and WhitCAF, hosted by the Whitby Public Library. We’ve been exhibiting here as long as the show has existed (3 years and running). Whitby, we love the fact that you keep coming back and buying our comics, year after year! Repeat customers are our absolute favourite.
Our second go-around at what’s rapidly becoming one of our favourite shows. Last year at MCX we debuted issue #3. Today, folks came back for issues #4 and #5. A truly fulfilling experience.
Comic books are by definition books so we had a legit reason for taking part in Toronto’s celebration of books at Harbourfront. It appears that over the last few years, more and more comic book creators are exhibiting at this event, evidenced by the highly noticeable “comic book area” of the festival. 30 degrees in September was unexpected but we ate poutine and drank lemonade and sold comic books and hung out with awesome comics folks so the day was a success. We’ll definitely consider returning next year as the audience for Group of 7 continues to expand. Listen to us chat about future projects at WOTS here.
Hometown show (well, at least for one of us)! The Dragon is one of the best in the biz and we were thrilled to be part of the inaugural Guelph Comics Jam. Best part was that due to the locality, my kid (a.k.a. Pikachu) got to participate and help set up the table. Pikachu was such a hit that another artist even drew him!
