TCAF2021: That’s a wrap

And just like that another Toronto Comic Arts Festival has come and gone. Albeit virtual, the exhibition and supporting events were deemed a success by all — especially by the creators themselves.

For a second year in a row, True North Country Comics dedicated the month of May (and more) to chat with exhibitors about their favourite festival moments, their inspirations and especially about their books.

Even though everyone expressed a strong desire to exhibit at a physical event in the future, all the creators enjoyed the opportunity to gather virtually to celebrate the fun of comics.

Here are just some of the creators who participated in this year’s TCAF2021 and offered their time for a podcast interview. You’re encouraged to discover more about their work and hopefully purchase a book or two from them.
