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.
Hometown show (well, at least for one of us)! The Dragon is one of the best in the biz and we were thrilled to be part of the inaugural Guelph Comics Jam. Best part was that due to the locality, my kid (a.k.a. Pikachu) got to participate and help set up the table. Pikachu was such a hit that another artist even drew him!

Outmanned and outgunned underneath Vimy Ridge, the Group nevertheless takes the fight to the mysterious and merciless Landsknechts, and makes a fateful decision that might just alter the course of the War.

Thanks again to Leslieville’s Sidekick for hosting us this afternoon! We sold and signed comics, discussed the finer merits of Transformers: The Movie and consumed much caffeine. If you haven’t yet visited Sidekick, you really should. An inclusive space for picking up your comic books and enjoying good coffee? Yes please!
This means a lot. Thank you to those who voted us Best Comic Book and thanks to all Canadian-indie-comic book-loving fans without whom, books like ours wouldn’t leave the printing house.
