May, Comics month


May, Comics month

“April showers bring May flowers “said the famous adage. Well we like our flowers in paper, and that’s why we’re declaring May to be the month of Comics! What we used to call the OFF! Festival officially becomes the Comics month, thanks to the Bibliothèques de Montréal, who’s behind the initiative. So take out your agenda and your best pen because we prepared tons of great activities for you, in the language of Shakespeare and Jean Leloup!
