Michael Comeau at the Toronto Zine Library

The Toronto Zine Library is holding their second in-library event on April 29th, and it should be a fantastic one. Try to make it out!

The Toronto Zine Library presents:
A talk with guest speaker
Michael Comeau

Sunday, April 29th, 1:30pm
at the TRANZAC
292 Brunswick Avenue, south of Bloor.

Please join us for a talk with special guest zine-maker Michael Comeau hosted by the TZL Collective at the Toronto Zine Library. In his talk, Michael will talk about his personal history with zines, and how his involvement with zine culture has informed his work as a professional artist and screenprinter.

Michael Comeau is a Toronto-based printmaker and poster artist , and is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. In addition to his work as an artist, he has been a zine-maker for many years and was formerly the director of Cut'N'Paste zine fair as well as the Penny Arcade Print Shoppe and Gallery in Kensington Market. His recent projects include a solo show, Excretion Escapades, at Magic Pony and the curation of Regal Beast, a series of art anthologies.

The Toronto Zine Library is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are commited to making zines more accessible in Toronto. We believe that zines are still an important method of communication that should be cherished, protected and promoted. Our aim is to do this through our public collection of zines, conducting related workshops at our physical library and abroad, and by holding events that promote zines as a method of open communtication and free expression.
