TCAF2020 – That’s A Wrap!

tcaf2020 logo

Even though we didn’t get to physically experience the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this year, True North Country Comics was able to chat with a wide variety of creators who were scheduled to exhibit at the event.

Listening to these artists, editors, publishers and writers tell their stories is eye opening in many ways. In addition to discussing the great work they planned to showcase at TCAF, they shared their inspirations, their creative processes and most of all they shared their love of comic books.

In these unprecedented times, the common thread throughout all their stories is simple — create, don’t give up, and don’t wait — do something now.

To support these creators, please consider purchasing their books from their own store or your local book store including The Beguiling and Page & Panel.

Here are the TCAF 2020 exhibitors who kindly gave of their time to chat with True North Country Comics Podcast:
