Comics Vs. Games

Inspired by the artxgame projects in Los Angeles and San Francisco, TIFF Nexus’ Comics vs Games creative jam, led by Miguel Sternberg from the Hand Eye Society, has developed five inspiring game collaborations between nationally and internationally renowned independent comic and game creators.
