Our TCAF table is confirmed - stop by table 259 for all things Spera!! Josh, Victoria, Kyla and me will be there with copies of Spera: Volume 1 and Magical Girls and free postcards!
We are on the second floor, up the stairs and to the right, in the Owlkids exhibitors’ area, in front of the bar. I like how we are in front of the bar, even if the taps remain silent throughout the weekend, deep in my heart I feel Yonder approves too :’)
For those in need of a functioning bar, Corey Mintz has kindly compiled a list of 41 places you must eat in Toronto, I am working my way through those at the moment. I recommend, salivating in memory, the Porchetta sandwich; Hibiscus in Kensington Market (AMAZING salads and galettes); and Ravi Soups (roast pork shoulder wrap and mushroom bisque!). We have already gone back twice to Nadege on 780 Queen St West for great cakes and croissants. And the Town Crier Pub (115 John Street) with 50 beers on tap andcurry poutine which regrettably I haven’t tried yet because each time we’ve gone I’ve just been tragically too full. Btw I’m not getting any money from endorsing these places, just satisfaction.
Back to comics, I will also have Dear Wonderful World and the last few copies of Drops in the Ocean for reading/sale, I’ll have a few copies of HAWK with me as well, the beautiful artbook full of Amei and Wratty and Kidchan’s lovely illustrations. Also some not-Basara book I’m not displaying that out of embarrassment haha. Just ask me about that setouchi comic, I’ll bring it out for you. See you there!!
I want to buy all of this. Hwei’s work is beautiful.
