TCAF 2011 Fancy Photo Comic Part 1

Rather than trying to recount every single crazy awesome thing that happened at TCAF in Toronto last weekend, I will instead communicate my excitement through photo comics.

The Doctor Is In T-Shirt

“The Doctor Is In” shirt based off the “You’re The Last of The Time Lords, Charlie Brown” comic is here!

This first installment contains the pre-show party at Ryan North’s house. He is the goodest of good people. He opened his home and his fridge to countless wayward cartoonists and we are all better for it. There was actually a bathtub full of beer. I don’t know if this is standard in all Canadian homes of if he went out of his way for us. I have my suspicions.

Featured in the first half of this comic are my favorite comicing girls, Danielle and Angela. They were the first two cartoonists I’d ever hung out with at a con, and the first to make me feel like part of the team. The man stalked by the captain is Chris, and elsewhere in panel 4 are my roommate/travel companion Paul, Bernie, @realitymonster and way off in the back there’s a bit of Anthony.

The second half of the photo comic shenanigans take place at the TCAF after-party hosted by Jeffrey of Topatoco at BMB Karaoke. The pocket monster enthusiasts are Becky and Frank, along with a repete performance from Angela. Frank and I made a pact to sing as many 90’s nu-metal songs as possible that night. Despite the Papa Roach and and System Of  A Down we belted out, I managed to only get video of him singing “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Early in the night Questionable Jeph concocted a plan to bring the house down and queued up “Don’t Stop Believin” so that  it would appear almost last in the rotation. I have video of his performance but I dare not upload it for fear of imploding The Internet. I also have a video of him singing “Enter Sandman” but that’s just for me…. juuussst for meeeee. Also seen in these panels are Sam “Fuzzy” Logan and his fiance Shannon. Sam will factor more into tomorrow’s photo comic when I show you what happened during the actual show.

    • Oooooooooor you could leave stop being a dickface because you don't personally find it funny. The rest of us are still enjoying it. Stop being an ass because you don't personally like it. It's all subjective.

  1. Is it sad that I have all the webcomics favorited that these people have done and check up on them each day? That and I was able to recognize each artist…I need a life…

    • No, that's not sad, it just means you're a certain kind of geek.
      and I'm going to say it's the "good kind of geek" because I recognized many of the faces, and all of the names/comics myself.

      p.s, as to the anyone who's commenting to complain about the photo comics, I completely disagree, I always enjoy Joel's post-con photo comics(as well as ones by other comic artists). This kind of comic can be a fun little taste of an event I wasn't able to attend.

  2. It is incredible to see so many of my favourite creators in one place. 😀
    It's kinda like seeing that teachers have home lives and don't just live at school. 🙂 I hope you all had a blast.

    Though I have to admit reading these photo con wrap ups is fairly close to what watching someone masturbate feels like. Though I feel slightly less guilty and unclean afterward.
    Then again, you put the work in, you certainly deserve a little public self pleasure now and then. 😉

  3. Am… am I a bad person if I genuinely like "Don't Stop Believing", and the thought of Jeph singing it gives my ladybits pleasure?

  4. In the summer months beer is kept in the bathtub. I the winter I like to throw it in a drift outside the nearest door/window.

  5. I do enjoy these photo comics. It enforces the fact that I need to just start going to conventions full time.

  6. See, that's why sentient robots need to be created by Canadians. If they ever go on a rampage, it will be a rampage of compliments, construction, and general tidying-things-up-eh.

  7. Sorry to be a warm fuzzy blanket, but I think this is funny, and I actually like it!

    The moose vipers could be considered almost as big a menace to society as AT&T, so it is good Joel survived. It would appear he had a good time, which is better than mere survival.
