:: Posted by BK @ 3/02/2010 06:52:00 AM

U.S. cartoonist Jim Woodring is the latest guest to be announced for the upcoming Toronto Comics Arts Festival (May 2010). Making his first Toronto appearance, Woodring is best known for his comic book series Jim (Fantagraphics) and stories and graphic novels starring his character Frank. Raconteur, painter, and Jack Kirby workmate, Woodring also coined the phrase "Canuck piddlepants" to describe Canadian cartoonists.

Other guests include the Transmission X webcomics collective and Ho Che Anderson.


TCAF Welcomes: Jim Woodring, Ho Che Anderson, and Fantagraphics Books

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is excited to announce the addition of exhibitors Fantagraphics Books, and guests Jim Woodring and Ho Che Anderson to the 2010 Festival!

Hailing from Seattle, WA, Fantagraphics Books ( www.fantagraphics.com ) has been one of the world’s leading publishers of comics and graphic novels since it began publishing the critical trade magazine The Comics Journal in 1976. This is Fantagraphics' first time exhibiting at TCAF, and the company will be represented by Editor Eric Reynolds.

As part of Fantagraphics' presence at TCAF, they will debut the new graphic novel WEATHERCRAFT: A FRANK BOOK by alt-comix legend Jim Woodring. This is Woodrin's first visit to Toronto in memory, and his appearance is sure to be highly anticipated amongst comics fans thanks to his illustrious career creating comics, paintings, and three-dimensional art objects. Woodring will be signing copies of his work and will give a presentation on his career at TCAF.

Also just confirmed is Toronto's own Ho Che Anderson, author of the acclaimed comics biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., KING, recently re-released in a Special Edition from Fantagraphics.
