CAF Time

It's that time of the year... the time for Comic Arts Festivals!

This weekend, you can find me at TCAF in Toronto. Once again, the upper level of the Toronto library will house a broad bevy of online cartoonists, including many of my Topatoco pals. And as always, the show is totally free to attend! Sweet deal, right?

And then later this month, on the 24th and 25th, I'll be back here in Vancouver for this year's VanCAF! This year's show is going to be the biggest one yet, with new guests like Kris Straub, Natasha Allegri and Aaron Diaz. And of course, VanCAF is ALSO totally free to attend. It is an amazing time to be alive.

If you're coming to VanCAF, might I suggest picking up one of our VanCAF VIP packages? For $15, you get an exclusive Tony Cliff print, a set of art postcards drawn by ten of our guests (myself include), a backpack tote, tickets for the VanCAF raffle (which has some pretty crazy prizes), VIP seating at panels, and a bunch of other stuff. It's kind of an insane deal, to be honest, and buying one will help VanCAF bring in even more great guests in the future. Hooray!

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Positive Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"I was wondering if I could buy an [Artist Edition] bookplate on its own, since I already have the Omnibus. If so, how much would it cost?" -Cam

Yes! If you'd like to buy a bookplate for your existing Omnibus -- or a second one, if you'd like to have one in both volumes -- you can buy them on their own right here! It costs the same to buy a bookplate and an Omnibus separately as it does to get them both together, so you haven't missed out on anything. You can also get full colour bookplates if you'd like to splurge!

"When we first met Gertrude, she was facing certain legal difficulties - I was wondering if that ever got cleared up, or if things are still a bit dicey for her on the surface?" - Chatham

Yes! That's probably the main reason why her business empire operates entirely underground. I don't think anyone is especially proactively looking for Gert above ground anymore, and I'm sure she pokes her nose out up there from time to time, but she's still a wanted fugitive.

"I was wondering about Mr. X and Mr. Y. Did you always plan for them to look the way they were revealed to in Wednesday’s comic, or did you include that specifically for the sake of Saucy Hippo entertainment?" -Austin

Yes! Or at least, the revelation that Y and X were gorgeously and thuggishly handsome (respectively) has been canon in the back of my brain for an extremely long time. It just seemed like... the way it should be.

"Wow so X and Y unmasked sure do look...nice. You lining up characters for a Slipshine contribution?" -Clara

Yes! Wait... no. Sorry, I just got a little carried away, there. (But not, like, that carried away.) Adult comics are fun and all, but I don't think anyone is clamouring for hot X and Y action.

Free Comic Book Day at Metropolis Comics this weekend

I'm not sure why Catopians favour such sphere-based architecture. But hey, at least they are consistent about it!

What are you doing for Free Comic Book Day this Saturday? I, for one, will be at Metropolis Comics' Free Comic Day event, along with Ed Brison, Steve Rolston, Simon Roy, and a bunch of other cool local cartoonists. You should come on by! There are going to be raffles and prizes and, of course, lots of free comic books. (And I'll also be bringing a few of my own slightly-less free books, if you'd like to pick one up.)
