SpeakEasy is a monthly gathering of Toronto’s creative community. It’s an opportunity to network, share ideas, and keep in touch with the pulse of Toronto’s creative professionals. Since 1996 it has grown from a get-together of a few friends to an event that now draws regular crowds of up to 300. SpeakEasy takes place 8 times a year, on the first Thursday of the month, at The Gladstone Hotel.

About the SpeakEasy Comic Book Show

Toronto is home to some of the best known comics artists in North America. We have an active and vibrant community putting out some of the highest quality comics to be found anywhere. The SpeakEasy Comics Show features an eclectic mix of Toronto’s talented comic book artists - from those who do newspaper strips and political cartoons, to underground comix and mainstream superhero comic books! The event promises to display an exciting cross-section of the comics community here in Toronto, as well as a glimpse into how good comics are made. As the old cliché goes, there really will be something for everyone.

About the Visions of an Icon: Superman art display:

This is a final showing of the Visions of an Icon: Superman artwork created by Canadian creators in 2008.

Some pieces will be available for sale at the show, the remainder (including pieces by Dave Sim, Todd McFarlane, Tom Grummett) will be auctioned on eBay as fundraising for the 2009 Joe Shuster Awards.

The artwork (42 pieces) has only been displayed to the public once before - at the Sequential Art Symposium back on June 14, 2008.

CCBCAA membership will be on hand to discuss the Joe Shuster Awards and we will have prints and other related items available at the event for sale.

Local artist and Visions contributor ALEXANDER PERKINS will be joining us in the Visions room.
