Darwyn here. I wanted todrop by and bring attention to our appearance at TCAF this comingweekend, which will see the launch of the Illustrated Parker novelsas well as a host of other cool events.
Bringing the Parker novels back in a premium hardcover form withillustration plates is something I've dreamed of for years, and asthe dream moved closer to a scheduled reality I realized I wantedthe book launch to happen in my hometown of Toronto. Thatimmediately made me think of TCAF and what a fitting show it wouldbe for the launch.
For those who haven't attended TCAF, it isn't your typical NorthAmerican comics show. More European in approach, it avoids themainstream and focuses on the art of cartooning and creatingcomics. An International guest list unrivalled in North America. Indepth workshops. An amazing emphasis on comics for Kids as well asthe cognoscenti. Free admission to the show proper.The Doug WrightAwards. Panels in local bars.
