Over this weekend, TCAF (The Toronto Comics Art Festival) will be taking place on May 8 and May 9 at the Toronto Reference Library. Among a large exhibition of independent comic book artists and creators, The Hand Eye Society’s TCAF Arcade will also be there with the Torontoron arcade cabinet, which will feature a number of Toronto indie games available for playing. The event is FREE to the public, so come down to join in all of the events. Since this posting doesn’t really do TCAF justice, you should also see the posting about it from The Hand Eye Society‘s website.Â And of course the TCAF website (www.torontocomics.com) also has more detailed information about this event.

The following video game related panel discussion will also be taking place during TCAF :
The Spirit of Indie: Where Comics Meet Video Games
Saturday, May 8th, 2:00 â€“ 2:45pm, at The Pilot (22 Cumberland Street, which is across the street from the Toronto Reference Library)
Thereâ€™s more to the game industry than blockbuster, multi-system titles just as thereâ€™s more to comics than Batman. This panel seeks to explore the ways in which independent comic artists and game developers have influenced each other and spurred each other on to explore the possibilities of their medium. Cartoonists/game contributors and creators Scott Campbell, Jamie McKelvie, Jim Munroe, and Miguel Sternberg will be interviewed by games journalist Matthew Kumar.
