Paul Pope signs at TCAF
TCAF continues to be one of the most vital, relevant and vibrant of all the comics gatherings. With some of the most knowledgeable people in the business running it, it offers a rare combination of business and pleasure, by drawing to Toronto A-list talent from around the world; by sponsoring a few smart, timely and essential panels; and by not overly managing the whole thing. It's one of the happiest meeting points for readers, authors and publishers alike.
It shouldn't be long before Toronto's officials realize that comics are raising the city's cultural profile in the world.
FIRST SECOND is an imprint of Roaring Brook Press, a division of Holtzbrinck Publishers, which owns some of America's most prestigious publishers, known for great integrity and literary quality. These include Henry Holt, FSG, St Martin's Press, Tor and Picador, all of which have garnered the most coveted prizes in publishing.
