Happenings: WORD ON THE STREET round-up

It’s really great to see that Canadian comics, webcomics and graphic novels will have such a visible presence at all four of the WOTS sites in 2009!

HALIFAXStrange Adventures will be setting up as an exhibitor.

KITCHENER – Guelph’s The Dragon will be setting up as an exhibitor and running a series of comics related programming at the Graphic Novels tent.  A map can be found here.

TORONTO – A whole slew of comics retailers and creators will be setting up at the event. Plus The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is sponsoring the Comics & Graphic Novels tent and programming in conjunction with Sequential Spiltink.

VANCOUVER – Comics are a large part of the Word Under the Street section of the event, with some comics related programming and plenty of local creators appearing.

If you live in, or near, any of these cities on Sunday, September 27 we here at the Joe Shuster Awards urge you to go out and check them out! 

Of course, one wonders why more Canadian cities aren’t participating in this excellent series of events. Where’s WOTS Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, London, Ottawa, Windsor, Montreal, Charlottetown, St. John’s, etc.?
