Comics Alliance Talks About Toronto Comics Anthology Vol. 3

Comics Alliance's Keiren Shiach wrote a great article about Toronto Comics Anthology Vol. 3 that you can read by clicking here!

Here's an excerpt:

"The Toronto Comics Anthology has been the jumping off point for scores of great new local talent for a couple of years now, and for many of the creators it gives them the first opportunity to have comics work printed and published for the world to see. After the success of last year’s second volume, the anthology is back to show off the best and brightest of the Toronto indie scene to the world.

Volume 3 is currently live on Kickstarter, and features not only the best of up and coming Toronto talent, but more experienced creators such as Jason LooMeaghan Carter and Howard Wong. The book features thirty brand new stories set in and around Toronto, and features a foreword from Unbeatable Squirrel Girl writer and Toronto resident Ryan North."

Toronto Comics Anthology Vol. 3 on Kickstarter now!

I have an amazing post-apocalyptic story with art by Keith Grachow in Toronto Comics Anthology Vol. 3, which is on Kickstarter right now!

A lone soldier's attempt to survive in a post-nuclear winter attracts those looking for hope and those looking for blood.

About this project
Toronto Comics: Volume 3 is 300 pages of all-new comics starring Hogtown, brought to you by 47 local creators! This 6"x 9" softcover is jammed with 30 B+W stories from experienced indie veterans, as well as talented newcomers being published for the first time.

From post-apocalyptic Massey Mutant gangs to the unsettled ghosts of the Keg Mansion, from flirty skyscrapers to condo supervillains, this anthology is a love letter to the city of Toronto. With a foreword by Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), this is our most ambitious work yet!

We have a table booked at the Toronto Comics Art Festival this May, and we need your help to launch the anthology there! All the artwork is ready to go, but now we need your support to help cover our print and creator costs.

We successfully ran a Kickstarter last year for Volume 2, and we were 1500% funded. We started very small, with writers pooling pocket money to cover print cost and artists donating their time, but thanks to your generosity with Volume 2's Kickstarter, we're now able to offer a page rate to our creators!
