If you’re looking for something interesting, fun, inexpensive and unusual to do this weekend in Accordion City, you might want to check out TCAF, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. It’s a celebration of comics, graphic novels and other forms of “serial art” (to use the coinage by Scott McCloud, author/illustrator of Understanding Comics). It’s been going on all week, but the really big stuff is happening this weekend at the Toronto Reference Library, and it’s free to attend! The Reference Library is right on top of Bloor/Yonge station, so if you can, save yourself some parking hassles and take the subway. (Or if you can, bike there — Bloor Street’s a great bike route.)
I’ve already got plans for today, but I’m going to try to catch some of it tomorrow.
