About the Books & Authors:

britt-catCat Dad, King of the Goblins
Miri and Luey have a dilemma. Their dad’s been turned into a cat and their closet is a garden full of goblins. There is only one thing for them to do — grab their friend Phil the frog and dive headfirst into a wild, woolly and wacky adventure.

Britt Wilson grew up in Brampton, Ontario. She attended both OCAD and Sheridan College, eventually graduating from Sheridan with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Illustration. Wilson published her first book Britt Wilson’s Greatest Book on Earth, a collection of her mini-comics, with Conundrum Press in 2012. She now lives in Toronto, Ontario with her husband and white cat.

martz-catA Cat Named Tim
In Tim’s world, a cat can paint on the ceiling and a happy pig couple can wait months for the bus. A duck and a mouse love to go flying, in a plane, of course. Every page is an adventure and each character is colorful in this collection of comics.

John Martz is a cartoonist and illustrator in Toronto, Canada. He is the creator of the wordless online comic strip Machine Gum, and the illustrator of several picture books including Abbott & Costello’s Who’s On First?(Quirk Books, 2013). His comics and illustrations have appeared in The Globe & Mail, MAD Magazine, Maisonneuve, and more. He won the 2013 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Story for his comic book Gold Star (Retrofit Comics, 2012).

panthor_cover_1800PANTHOR #1 Book Launch 
Featuring author Aaron Manczyk
Thursday, October 9, 2014
@ The Central, 603 Markham St.
Presented by The Beguiling
18+

From the author of “Cumlung” and “Strokes of Genius” comes his latest and greatest creation: PANTHOR. He’s a mercenary, and some bad men need him to do a an even worse job. He’ll do it, but on HIS terms. And there’ll be a whole lot of nude killing. Really, really nude.

Look, this is going to be a book launch, but there might also be wrestling? At least arm wrestling. And an interview. And PANTHOR.

You were warned.
