Celebrate Image Comics’ 25th Anniversary at TCAF 2017!

TCAF, The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, has announced that it will host a celebration for the 25th Anniversary of groundbreaking comic book publisher Image Comics!

Special guests, amazing programming, and even a dedicated venue will thrill fans old and new alike at TCAF 2017, taking place May 13th and 14th, 2017, in Toronto, Canada. Image Comics is the largest publisher of creator-owned comic books in North America, with notable titles including The Walking Dead, Saga, The Wicked + The Divine, and Toronto’s own Sex Criminals, reaching beyond ‘mainstream’ comics’ traditional borders to bring in new readers, promote fairer contracts, and publish some great work!

The Image 25th Anniversary Party @ The Masonic Temple

For two days in May, Image Comics creators, staff, and friends, will take over TCAF’s newest venue The Masonic Temple (introduced in 2016), located at 888 Yonge Street, a block north of TCAF’s main location Toronto Reference Library. The Image 25th Anniversary Party at The Masonic Temple is a fully accessible venue which will feature both all-day exhibitors and timed creator signings, as well as panel discussions, live drawing, special ‘talk show’ segment, and more!

The Image 25th Anniversary Party @ The Masonic Temple runs Saturday, May 13, from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, May 14, from 11am to 5pm, and as with almost every TCAF event, admission will be FREE!

Please note: This is opening 1 hour later than TCAF’s main venue at Toronto Reference Library. At points during the day they may need to stagger entry to conform to fire code regulations. Make sure to dress as warm as you need to and bring an umbrella, just in case you’re waiting outside!
