The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is a celebration of comics and graphic novels that will be taking over the Toronto Reference Library on May 14th and 15th. While the city already hosts a number of comic book and anime conventions, this free event gives graphic novel enthusiasts a different type of venue to engage with creators.
Similar to events such as Angouleme, Harlem and the Small Press Expo, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival is an annual event that includes activities such as presentations, readings, panel discussions, exhibitions and gallery shows. The festival will feature works by publishers, as well as comic book authors and artists. The festival also differs from larger conventions in that the general public has a chance to freely explore the exhibits and attend festival-related events.
Unlike an expensive convention, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival provides a great way for consumers to dip their toes into the world of graphic novels.
