The Canadian comic scene is a meeting place of different cultures and languages. Even though the Canada focus of this year’s Comic Salon unfortunately had to be postponed to 2022, the virtual salon #CSEdigital in its CANADA Special conveys what the country has to offer in the field of graphic literature – a diverse picture of the exciting and dynamic comic scene. Many of the articles have been created especially for the newspaper “Northern Stars”, with exclusive comics by Canadian comic artists and reports on the Canadian comic scene. The exhibition is postponed to 2022.
