Huge shout out to the fine folks at Gotham Central for carrying Group of 7! Thank you so much! Our first retail location in Mississauga and 12th overall. Issues #1 and #2 now available in-store.
The inaugural edition of PeteCAF (Peterborough Comic Arts Festival) brought us to the Electric City for the first time this past weekend. Hosted at the newly renovated (and gorgeous) Peterborough Public Library’s main branch, PeteCAF featured a plentiful mix of local comic book talent plus us and a couple other out-of-towners. Jason sketched and discussed his process while participating on the Artist panel while I repped Group of 7 on the Author and Publisher panels. We received a great reception from the comic book and non-comic book folk who strolled into the library. Our big red banner certainly helps in that regard. As does the name. “Group of 7? The artists right?” Er, not exactly… 😁
Despite terrible weather (it snowed AND hailed), we had a wonderful time exhibiting at the Kazoo Print Expo. Apparently even the worst weather won’t keep Guelphites from checking out and supporting local arts (sidebar – I love this city). We met a whack of great folks, picked up some amazing product and drank some delicious Kazoo Fest beer (specially brewed by Wellington Brewery). We also debuted our new banner and signed Issue #2 for a fan who explicitly visited us (and the Print Expo) for that one specific reason. Made our day. At my request, Jason even drew Hourman for me! Hourman! The hero whose powers last for an hour! And only an hour!
Yeah that’s right WE HAVE A BANNER! Just in time for Kazoo Print Expo, Markham Comic Con, Peterborough Comic Arts Festival and all our other spring events. Alphonso and the Studiocomix Press team did an amazing job. BONUS! Issues #1 and #2 now available at their Kitchener store!
