I’m working on a longer account of TCAF for PW, but here’s some photos to capture the high while it’s fresh.

Now here’s a nice example of “comics across the world.” TCAF, the Toronto Arts Festival, has taken a booth at Tokyo’s Kagai Manga Festa on November 18th, and will allow certain Canadian cartoonists to exhibit at the booth for free.
