First of all I know I said I’d be on hiatus, but I couldn’t resist. I love this city and my readers too much not to mention this event!
This weekend is the return of the popular Toronto Comic Arts Festival (or known simply known as TCAF). The event will be celebrating its 10th anniversary and will be held at The Toronto Reference Library. The event is free to attend and is great for those Dating on a Budget ;). The TCAF festivities started earlier this week, but no worries because there are still plenty events to attend. This is great festival that is a celebration of comic culture and I am so bummed to be missing it this year!
The two events that I wouldn’t have mind seeing include:
The World of Taiyo Matsumoto, a gallery exploring the career of Taiyo Matsumoto The event will be held at 131 Bloor Street West on the second floor and is on May 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
TCAF Queer Mixer: Featuring Tagame & Vellekoop! This is becoming such a big genre in the comic world, so it would interesting to learn some more about it. Plus for many who will celebrate Pride next month you can call this an early celebration. The mixer will celebrate gay comic icons Tagame and Vellekoop on May 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Also Bill Amend, David B. Blutch, Boulet, Ivan Brunetti and C.F. will be this year’s featured guest!
