Got the Post-FCBD Blues? Here's a Free Anthology from Toronto Comics & Art Festival to Cheer You Up

Help ease back into the world of pay-for-comics with one more freebie this week.

One thing that sucks about getting a bunch of free comics on the first Saturday of May each year is that, when Monday rolls around, you're thrown back into a sad reality where comics must be paid for with cold hard cash. I know. It's a real shock to the system.

Luckily, the folks at Sequential, a digital comics app for hipsters, are offering a free digital download of the TCAF Anthology until May 11th. What is the TCAF Anthology, you ask? Well, Sequential's web page has the answer:

This is the FREE Toronto Comic & Arts Festival 2015 Digital Comics Anthology!

This exclusive Anthology features specially created, brand new comics from an amazing collection of comic artists including Hunt Emerson, Barbara Stok, Noah Van Sciver, Kristyna Baczynski, Simon Moreton, Margreet de Heer, Joe Decie and Elaine M. Will, all of whom are appearing and/or exhibiting at TCAF this year, as well as cover artwork from Charles Burns.

It's completely FREE to download – and it's only available on SEQUENTIAL. It will be available over TCAF and until May 11th, with each download helping to earn money for TCAF – so snap it up quickly, and please tell your friends to download it too! 


And what's the Toronto Comic & Arts Festival, you ask? Well, they've got the answer to that too:

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is a week long celebration of comics and graphic novels and their creators, which culminates in a two-day exhibition and vendor fair featuring hundreds of comics creators from around the world. Other Festival events include readings, interviews, panels, workshops, gallery shows, art installations, and much more.

Since 2009, TCAF has been held at Toronto Reference Library in Toronto, Canada, and presented by Toronto Public Library.

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival 2015 will take place Saturday, May 9th, 9am-5pm, and Sunday May 10th, 11am-5pm, at Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street. Admission is free. 


We have no idea how downloads of this earn money for the festival, but there's a lot of free stuff happening here, from admission to digital downloads, and we feel it's best to not ask questions and just take the free stuff. Not only is it free, but these are highly coveted indie comics - just think how superior you'll free explaining to your friends how you know about all these cool up and coming comics superstars from the Toronto area.

The only catch - you need an iDevice thingy for this. So if you've got one of those fancy pieces of metal and plastic, head over to this link and get your hands on some free comics goodness. Here's some images we painstakingly extracted from the website:
