Word On The Street – Toronto, September 22, 2019

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.

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!

Ontario Heritage Fairs Association AGM (Toronto, ON) – October 28, 2017

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.
