Whazamo! State of the Art: Self Publishing


The Toronto Comics Arts Festival is the most jam-packed fiesta of cartooning talent you can find all cramed under one roof. This year, rather than just show you the festival, we wanted to take a close look at the methods and means contemporary cartoonists use to express themselves today in a two-part series called State of the Art.

The first part, Self-Publishing, explores the tenacity of print culture in the age of the web. Comics artists have been printing their own books for so long it's practically a right of passage. How do they reach their audience? Why is self-publishing considered fair game for comics and graphic novels but not for other forms of writing or literature? Are they simply crazy for doing this -- or do they know something we don't? Featuring creators such as: Adam Bourret (I'm Crazy), Jim Munroe (Sword of My Mouth), Tara Tallan (Galaxion) and Chris Kuzma and Patrick Kyle from the art collective Wowee Zonk!
