Bring your dancing shoes and some smiles and come on down and make some noise!

Back in 1996, Kid Koala became the first North American artist signed to UK label Ninja Tune. His incredible skill, innovation, and performance style led him to attract attention from those outside the club community. His releases include “Carpal Tunnel Syndrome” (which featured a video game and 32-page comic book by Kid Koala himself), “Some of My Best Friends are DJs”, and most recently “Your Mom’s Favourite DJ”. He is also the author of Nufonia Must Fall, a 350-page graphic novel with accompanying soundtrack.


First held in 2003, The Toronto Comic Arts Festival was conceived to provide interaction between the creative community and the public, and was modeled on similar festivals around the world. TCAF 2009 will take place at Toronto Reference Library, at 789 Yonge St. just North of Bloor Street in the heart of the city. The Festival will feature over 15,000 square feet of attractions within the Reference Library complex, more than 200 cartoonists, and more than two weeks of programming and events leading up to the 2-day exhibition extravaganza!

Canadian cartoonists are recognized as among the best in the world, particularly in the fields of manga and alternative comics. TCAF is Canada’s opportunity to not only promote and celebrate homegrown artistic talent, but also to broaden its scope and showcase creators from the US and abroad, many in Toronto for the first time. This prestigious gathering of artists will attract an international and national audience.
