Comic Book Marathon – Special Edition: Saturday November 1, 2014

In January 2014 we lost our dear friend Debra Jane Shelly to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). Please join us for a Special Edition of the Toronto Comic Book Marathon in her honour.

The TORONTO COMIC BOOK MARATHONS are held several times a year, organised by Keiren Smith of Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Bootcamp, sponsored and hosted by THE COMIC BOOK LOUNGE & GALLERY and BACK SPACE TORONTO, bringing creators together in a community event to make their own comic story, to work together, to inspire each other, to network…producing a page an hour!

The event is open to all who are passionate about creating comics. You may register as an individual or a team. If you wish to collaborate with someone but don’t have a partner, we can assist you in finding one.

**IMPORTANT: HOW TO REGISTER AS A CREATOR OR SPONSOR**

We will be using the event to raise money for Epilepsy Toronto, so please consider making an optional donation when registering.

Space is limited so be sure to register if you wish to participate. Supporters of participating creators do not have to register and are welcome to attend!

CREATORS

Please email backspacetoronto@gmail.com with the subject line “Comic Book Marathon”. Indicate in your email whether you will be participating alone, with a partner (and their full name) or if you wish to be partnered with another creator and would like our assistance finding one (let us know if you are a writer seeking an artist or vice versa). We will send you a confirmation email, along with further details (including set-up information, regulations and tips).

SPONSORSHIP

Donations of food and other refreshments for the duration of the event are greatly appreciated. Please email us at backspacetoronto@gmail.com (subject line “Comic Book Marathon Sponsorship”) and we would be happy to discuss an event partnership with you.

Ladies Night Returns – Saturday, August 23rd – 8PM-11PM

70sdcsuperheroeswIt’s the return of one of our Signature events at The Comic Book Lounge & Gallery, Temple Of Toys and Back Space Toronto.

Bring your fab nerd attire,
Bring your girlfriends,
and prepare yourself for Ladies Night at the Lounge!

Toronto’s premiere event exclusively for female fandom. A chance to hang and network with your fellow nerds the Saturday before nerd prom!

As always, the guys stay home and the shop becomes a female friendly space.

There will be plenty of opportunities to hang out and network with fellow fans, and to browse at the Comic Book Lounge and Temple of Toys. We’ll have a Wii set up for anyone in a competitive mood, and people should feel welcome to bring materials and use one of the tables in the Back Space for crafting activities, or gather a group of friends and play a board game from our selection of available games (or bring one of your own). 

This event is dedicated to Ladies Night Co-Founder Debra Jane Shelly (1974-2014).
