Comic Craze explores the rich and vibrant intersection of contemporary
art and narrative expressions found in comics. This large scale exhibition demonstrates
the importance and specific characteristics found in Canadian independent comic
books, mini-comics, ‘zines and graphic novels. Visitors to the exhibition
will discover the best of French and English publications from across Canada.
Capturing the different graphic and narrative styles that have made comic culture
one of the most absorbing and experimental forms of expression today, the exhibition
features over four hundred books from more than one hundred artists.
