The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists EPUB
The companion graphic novel to Wimbledon Green
Whenever you're in Dominion, on Milverton Street you will stumble across an arresting array of handsome old buildings. The one with the pink stone faÃ§ade and the familiar Canadian cartoon characters over the doorway is the Dominion branch of the Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists, erected in 1935 and the last standing building of the once prestigious members-only organization. For years, this building, filled with art deco lamps, simple handcrafted wood furniture, and halls and halls of black-and-white portraits of Canada's best cartoonists, was where the professionals of the Great White North's active comics community metâ€”so active that there were outposts in Montreal and Winnipeg, with headquarters in Toronto. Everyone from all branches of the industryâ€”newspaper strips, gag cartoons, nickel-backs, comic books, political art, accordion books, graphic novelsâ€”gathered in their dark green blazers to drink cocktails, eat, dance, and discuss all things cartooning.
The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists celebrates the cartoonists the comic collectors love.
