WAW @ SpeakEasy Comic Show! Nov 6th, 2008

We Are Wedges is going to be at the SpeakEasy Comic Show!

Date: Thursday, November 6th, 2008
Time: 8PM to Midnight

Place: The Gladstone Hotel - 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto

Admission: pay what you can/free

Toronto is home to some of the best-known comics artists in North America. We have an active and vibrant community putting out some of the highest quality comics to be found anywhere. The SpeakEasy Comics Show features an eclectic mix of Toronto’s talented comic book artists - from those who do newspaper strips and political cartoons, to underground comix and mainstream superhero comic books! The event promises to display an exciting cross-section of the comics’ community here in Toronto, as well as a glimpse into how good comics are made. As the old cliché goes, there really will be something for everyone.*

SpeakEasy is a monthly gathering of Toronto's creative community. It's an opportunity to network, share ideas, and keep in touch with the pulse of Toronto's creative professionals. Since 1996 it has grown from a get-together of a few friends to an event that now draws regular crowds of up to 300. SpeakEasy takes place 8 times a year, on the first Thursday of the month, at The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen W.)*

SpeakEasy began in 1996 and was founded by David Brown, a local Toronto encaustic painter whose paintings can be found in numerous galleries and museums through Canada and the U.S., and privately through North America, Europe, and Asia.
