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.

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.
Today we landed our 13th retail location – Page & Panel: The TCAF Shop! Next time you’re visiting the Toronto Reference Library, pop in to Page & Panel on the ground floor and check us out!

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!
Jason and I were interviewed by John Swinimer of True North Country Comics at the Mississauga Comic Expo and shared our thoughts on the latest issue of Group of 7 as well as personal insights into Remembrance Day. Listen to the interview here (scroll down to the bottom of the page).
