TCAF Opens Permanent Store in Toronto Public Library 

page_and_panel_interior_0I’ve never heard of this happening before, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say that TCAF is the first independent comics convention to open it’s own permanent retail shop (correct me if I’m wrong). What started in December as a pop-up shop in the Toronto Public  Library has now been rebranded as the permanent fixture Page and Panel. All the stores profits will be reinvested into TCAF.

For Toronto as a cartoonist’s town, I’d say another strong comic shop like this is a real asset. I do wonder if Page and Panel will be competing against TCAF’s own exhibitors come festival time, albeit in a small way that’s not really worth grumbling about.
