Join Silver Snail Comics as we welcome the Toronto Comics crew back to the Silver Snail! They’re launching their latest anthology Osgoode As Gold and will be here selling and signing copies Saturday, July 7th!
In a city of competitive wizard barristas, nervous werewolves and scoundrel Trash Pandas, you’ll find some of the best upcoming comic creators! We’re back again with 24 fresh comics from local indie veterans and first-time creators. From the strange giants that prowl Kensington at midnight, the vengeful Pacific Mall dance mafia, or the dragon-hunting wannabes working Queen street, we’ve got stories inspired by every part of the city we love.
Featuring a cover by Irma Kniivila (Ms. Marvel, Deadpool) and a foreword from Chip Zdarsky (Jughead, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man), this book is a celebration of the talent and diversity of Toronto’s comics community.
This is a standalone anthology, so you don’t need to have read any of our previous books to enjoy the stories. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a first-time reader, this is a book for you!
