Canadian comics culture is exploding all over the place!

Item: The NLWCC, or “Newfoundland’s West Coast Con” wrapped up Sunday in Corner Brook, NFLD. Nothing on youtube from it yet but the organizer and Founder Carson Smith was interviewed on Corner Brook Cafe’ October 15th.

Item: Leah McLaren suggests you read one of those obscure graphic novels, instead of a book nominated for a literary prize, perhaps unaware that there are now prizes for obscure graphic novels, even in Canada?

She’s still awesome, regardless. I wonder what her choice would be? Ty Templeton’sStig’s Inferno“? Julie Doucet’sThe Madame Paul Affair“? Or maybe something by Carel Moiseiwitsch? [like-link] Maybe Colin Upton‘s “Big Black Thing”? Or Ho Che Anderson‘s “Scream Queen”?

Item: Dan Clowes’ new D&Q book has some success at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
