TCAF, May 11th and 12th! See you there!

I'm putting the finishing touches on our presentation for the spotlight on our careers at TCAF. Besides that, Bá will be on a panel about adaptations from one media to another, talking more about his experiences with the Umbrella Academy comic becoming a Netflix live action series, but also about the latest books we adapted into Graphic Novels (like Two Brothers and How to Talk to Girls at Parties). This is the panel description, which will happen on Saturday at the Masonic Temple (888 Younge St.):

12:00-1:30 Page to Screen/Screen to Page – Comics is the perfect medium, sure, but there's definitely a thrill in seeing how our favourite stories move across formats. Between movies, television, poetry, and prose, these creators all have oodles of experience in the interplay between the original and the adaptation. Featuring Brian Selznick (Hugo), Gabriel Bá (Umbrella Academy), Renee Nault (Handmaid's Tale), and Jeff Lemire (Secret Path). Moderated by Dylan Magwood.​

Our spotlight panel in on Sunday, at the Forest Hill Ballroom inside the Marriott Bloor Yorkville, (90 Bloor St E.):

11:00 AM – Two Brothers: Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá Spotlight – Comics superstars Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá return to Toronto with tons of comics and stories in tow! More Umbrella Academy! More Casanova! More How to Talk to Girls at Parties! Come and join them for this very special presentation about their life and work!

I'll be a special guest of another special panel on Saturday. Try to find me!

Bá will have a special Umbrella Academy signing at the Random House table (they distribute Dark Horse comics in Canada) on Saturday afternoon at 2PM as well.

The rest of the time, we'll probably be at our table (315) on the third floor of the Library. The Beguiling table will have all our books available, and you're more than welcome to take them and bring them to our table for a signature and a quick doodle (we doodle on books, I know, we can't help it).

If you plan on going to TCAF, you should check out the entire programming, as it's full of wonderful gems. A David Rubin spotlight. A Craig Thompson spotlight. A panel with Jamie McKelvie, Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans. All the things happening at the Library and around the area. The PARTIES!

We love TCAF and are anxious to be back.

TCAF pre-show commissions

Back at the end of July, I opened my first commission list for drawings to be delivered at NYCC. I calculated enough time so that I didn't have to hurry on any of the requests, and I think everybody (myself included) were satisfied with what I was able to do. You can check over at my instagram the pieces I did if you search for the #mooncommissions #comoonssions hashtags. They were posted here on the blog as well. I learned with the experience that I can do this, juggle a small commission list with a certain amount of my comics' work, so I'm interested in trying it again to see what else people will ask for, and what my interpretation will be.

I am opening a TCAF pre-show commission list for those interested in having an original drawing by me with the character (or characters) of their choice. I'll hand deliver these drawings in Toronto during TCAF, so you need to be there in May (you can have somebody be there on your behalf as well).

If you're interested in a private commission and want to know more, please write to for more information. Because of my own limits, this is not a very big list, so there's a chance that, by the time you read this, you'll get on the waiting list.

(TCAF is one of our favourite shows, so we're excited to go back)
