Kids Read Comics is a convention that promotes comics for kids and the creators who make them. Every hour you'll find a free hands-on workshop where you'll learn comics storytelling techniques from our guest artists.
This year we have a terrific schedule of workshops for kids and teens. Whether you want to make journal comics, learn advanced drawing techniques, or even learn how to storyboard cartoons, there's something for you to try at KRC. You can download a PDF of the program or view it on the web here: http://ift.tt/1p3Mvxz
The epic battle of sorcery is about to begin on Sutherland's Peak! Who is the mysterious Gallus Lugubrious, and will our heroes find themselves caught in the path of his sinister magical lightning bolts?
Pickles and taft discover the parameters of their new gig from Zeenia, the chicken sorceress.

I had a lot of fun making this one. I hope you have fun reading it.
I've put limited runs of my mini-comics about animals doing people things on my Etsy store for the first time in years. Get regular editions or super fancy artist editions, and shipping is free in the USA!
The nominations are in, and now it's up to the kids to decide who wins! You can pick up a ballot at TCAF this weekend or fill out the online ballot (http://ift.tt/1Qn4sCc). The winners will be announced at a special ceremony at Kids Read Comics June 21, 2015.
Congratulations to all of the nominees!
If you're in the Toronto area this weekend I hope you'll make a stop at the Toronto Reference Library and check out one of the best comics shows in North America.
I'll be there with my new mini-comic about a pig and her battle tortoise, titled Pickles and Taft: Adventurers for Hire. I'll also have copies of Boulder and Fleet, Tiny Hamilton, Cap'n Cat: Former Shark Hunter, and The Warren Commission Report. Just look for the guy next toon the first floor.
On Friday I'll be leading my "how to lead a comics workshop even if you don't know how to draw" workshop during TCAF's Librarian and Educator Day: http://ift.tt/10hchm7
