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!
Listen to Jason’s interview with Aaron Broverman here!
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!
Starting tomorrow (March 21), you can grab your Group of 7 comics at the Silver Snail in Toronto! The Snail has been a Hogtown comics staple since Jason and I were both kids in the city so this development has us both over the moon! Milestone reached folks. Milestone reached.
Stoked to announce that copies of Issue 1 and 2 are now available at The Sidekick in Toronto! Leslievillians! East-Enders! Torontonians! Visit this awesome place, grab a coffee and shop for your comics!

I spy with my little eye.. new local comics on the new release wall! Looking to expand your pull with comics from Toronto creators? Try Group of 7! Just got a drop and lovely visit from the artist @jasonlapidus – come try a new read! #thesidekick #newcomics #local #leslieville #toronto #singleissues #comics #comicshop
As of today (really as of mere seconds ago) you can now buy Issue #1 at West End Comics in Toronto! So WHAT are you waiting FOR? Get thee to Parkdale!
A few months back, we were asked to present the comic and related resources at the Ontario Heritage Fairs Association AGM. The Association “offers students the opportunity to explore the many aspects of their Canadian heritage in a dynamic learning environment and to present the results of their efforts in either French or English in a public exhibition” (stolen directly from the website). These kinds of presentations are invaluable to both Jason and I as there’s always an angle or lens or suggestion we hadn’t yet considered in terms of how best to develop and share the comic with scholastic audiences. Overall, the meeting was vigorous and engaging and yet again affirmed the value of using resources like Group of 7 in a classroom setting. If we can help start a conversation about Canadian history, we’re pleased to do so.
(don’t mind the photo, I should have hit the lights beforehand)
The in-store retail train just keeps on a-chugging. Issue #1 is NOW AVAILABLE on the shelves at Cyber City Comix in the north end of Toronto (Steeles and Bathurst). Big thanks to Darryl at Cyber City for making this happen!
Great news! If you live in Toronto or area, you can now pick up YOUR copy of Group of 7 Issue #1 at The Beguiling! We’re absolutely thrilled to have our book available in one of Canada’s great comics stores!
