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.


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!


Please email 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).


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