The Toronto Comic Art Festival is happening this weekend and it's a doozy!
I am on this panel:
Saturday, 12:30pm-1:30pm: Awesome Comix!
Join Frank Santoro, Robin McConnell, Dash Shaw, Dustin Harbin and Robert Dayton for a look at how mainstream comics of the silver and bronze age have a relevance and impact on modern alternative comics. The panel will explore the legacy of some of the more interesting "mainstream" work from the 70's through to the 90's.
