Additionally, Pow Pow authors Julie Delporte and Boum (who will be signing copies of her books including La meduse at table Table 2043 on the 2nd Floor all weekend) are joined by creators Lee Lai (Stone Fruit), Ariane Cloutier (It’ll Be Alright?) , and Tania Mignacca (Ponto) for the all-star panel Greetings from Montréal: BD and Comics from Québec (moderated by Pow Pow’s own François Vigneault) on Saturday from 11am-Noon in the Hinton Room.

How well do you know your neighbours? Home to some of the top publishers of comic books and a thriving self-publishing community, Montréal boasts one of the most vibrant comics scenes in the world, bar none! But barriers still remain, and many curious readers just aren’t sure where to start exploring the world of Québec bandes dessinées. Come meet some of the incredible creators who make up the diverse Montréal scene as they discuss what makes for a good comics city, the intersecting cultures of francophone BD and anglophone comics in Québec, and what the future holds for an increasingly interconnected comics community throughout Canada and beyond. Presented in English.

Pow Pow will once again be participating in Portfolio Reviews this year! Bring samples of your comics work to the Study room on the first floor to get constructive feedback:

  • Saturday, April 28, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
  • Sunday, April 29, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
