We brought in writer and certified Canadian Graham (@GrahamSig) to discuss the bittersweet bummer that is the current state of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. He shares over 10 years of TCAF memories with us, which is extremely helpful to the analysis we’ve been trying to pull out of our asses about the YA-ification of comics. Lefty artists are losing the battle of gentrification, is it possible to change the material landscape and maintain a creative community’s integrity under capitalism? Or are we building the bones for the next Vegandale? We also go on several tangents about a new atheist k-8th.
