Some Resources of Possible Interest
For your reference and amusement...
Here's a list of local comics shops operating in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. If you're expecting to either move or visit here, it might come in handy.
Here's a list of known non-specialty outlets that stock select comics titles as a sideline to whatever else they're selling.
Here's a list of web authoring software I've been using to build and maintain this site.
And to close things off, a list of post-secondary schools in the Ottawa-Gatineau Region that teach classes that I suspect will be of use to budding cartoonists. I may be making competitive trouble for myself by doing this, but you have to pay your debts to your teachers forward somehow.
If you see something I've missed, let me know!
