Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
CBC Arts published an article about a new graphic novel called Christie Pits by Jamie Michaels with illustrator Doug Fedrau. The book reflects on the 1933 riot at Toronto’s Christie Pits Park. Jamie was quoted as saying: “The advantage of the form is I can give so much depth and background of the social climate of the time while still maintaining the story interest. I can do things with a graphic novel in one image that would take several pages in a novel.” You can read more at CBC.ca/Arts
