The Joe Shuster Awards are tonight at the University of Toronto campus. Admission is free. They’ll also have a booth at the Word on the Street festival tomorrow.
As I look at the nominee list, I see names of a half-dozen talented artists and writers working on everything from mainstream books to indie projects who I didn’t realize were Canadian. And there are more French-language titles than I had expected. The Apocalipstix and Les Nombrils (nominated in 2 categories) sound intriguing. I’ve been meaning to check out Northlanders – just waiting to clear through my stack of trade paperbacks before I get into too many new series.
