Top Shelf at TCAF with Nate Powell, James Albon, and more!

May 9, 2017

We're making a run for the border! Catch both Chris Staros and Leigh Walton in Canada this weekend for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, May 13-14 at the Toronto Reference Library. We're thrilled to be bringing you National Book Award winner Nate Powell to debut the stunning Nate Powell's Omnibox (collecting Swallow Me Whole, Any Empire, and You Don't Say), as well as James Albon flying in from France to debut Her Bark & Her Bite, a scalding dark comedy in bright luscious hues. Plus, keep an eye out for Molly Ostertag (Strong Female Protagonist), Eric Orchard (Maddy Kettle), Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung Fu), Jeff Lemire (Essex County, The Underwater Welder), and other members of the extended Top Shelf family!
