Today Open Book: Toronto kicks off our third annual WHAZAMO! Ontario Graphic Novel Month, featuring Whazamo WIR Ian Daffern. Check back with us throughout the month for new comics, illustrations and profiles of some of Canada's best graphic novelists and illustrators.

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, which takes place this year on May 7th and 8th at the Toronto Reference Library, is an opportunity to meet and mingle with your favourite artists and see them showcase their latest work. In this video, directed by Christopher Hutsul and produced by Nick Sorbara of Vimeo, some of the artists you'll find at TCAF — Chester Brown, Michael Comeau, Steve Charles Manale, Vicki Nerino, Michael Cho, Michael DeForge, Seth, Fiona Smyth and Britt Wilson — share their quirky, whimsical or merely practical choice of writing instrument.
