Meridian Comic Book Day at Grimsby Public Library – April 13, 2019

Had an awesome time yesterday at Meridian Comic Book Day at the Grimsby Public Library. Lots ‘o comic books, creators and cosplay. Most definitely, boisterous, vibrant, brightly-lit libraries are our favourite kind of libraries. We even managed to inspire a fellow creator to share his Group of 7 fan art! Cheers to organizer Simone and her team of tireless volunteers.

Toronto Comicon – March 15-17, 2019

Our first big comic con! Always rewarding to meet new creators and catch up with old friends. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the table. Special thanks to A. Shay Hahn for sharing our table space and holding down the fort while we sped off to enjoy the rest of the show. Toronto Comicon was a definite success!

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.

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!
