Toronto Comic Arts Festival

Photos of the 2011 Toronto Comic Arts Festival

The sixth annual Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) was held this past weekend at the Toronto Reference Library (a magnificent venue for a show like this). Despite the incredibly nice weather outside, thousands of devoted fans and curiosity seekers alike made their way through the three floors of exhibits, which with over three hundred participants truly included something for every taste. Plenty of artists were on hand to sign their work, participate in live art sessions, and discuss the finer points of plotlines and ink lines with the adoring public.
