For a small nation, Canada produces some of the best comics in the world. But is there something Canadian about these works? And if so - what? Together with TCAF director Christopher Butcher, publisher Andy Brown (Conundrum), festival director Francis Desharnais (Québec BD) and artists Ray Fawkes and Meags Fitzgerald, Andrew Woodrow-Butcher (TCAF) gets to the bottom of these questions?

As part of a festival exchange the TCAF – The Toronto Comic Arts Festival introduces German audiences to the Canadian comic scene. Meet artists Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes, Meages Fitzgerald, Aaron Manczyk as well as Katie and Steven Shanahan, browse the Canadian Pavilion at the upper foyer of the Redoutensaal with a great selection of Canadian titles, take part in discussions, artist talks and panels featuring Canadian topics and experience daily live-drawing sessions.

Panel in English.
