For those who wanted to get their hands on one (or maybe all) of Attract Mode’s Bit Bazaar: Winter Market exclusive holiday cards, but couldn’t make it to Toronto this past weekend, some good news!
Our fine friends at Bento Miso have them available online right this second. $20 CAD gets you the entire set of four, shipping and handling included. Best part? They’ll ship to both Canada and the United States.
Quantities are limited, plus I’d also suggest ordering them ASAP to make sure that they arrive in time for Christmas!
As mentioned at the very end of the most recent Instagram round up, I’m back in Toronto! Long story short: remember Bit Bazaar, which took place during Comics Vs. Games 2? Well, it was such a rousing success that there’s a round two, aka Bit Bazaar: Winter Market!
Actually, Attract Mode is the official partner for the event, and in addition to the usual bag of goodies, we’ve produced an extremely limited run of show exclusive holiday cards.
Perhaps you’ve seen some of the designs already, via Tiny Cartridge; the above are the final product, and they turned out rather nice! BTW, a huge thanks to the amazing talents behind them: Kris Mukai, Babs Tarr, Kyle Fewell, and Kelly Smith.
Again, you can only get them at Bit Bazaar: Winter Market, which happens tomorrow. If you’re a Torontonian, you’re in luck! And if you’re not, I’d suggest going on Kayak to see what Air Canada’s prices are right about now. For more information, simply click here.

So, how’s everyone spending their Memorial Day holiday? I myself am taking it easy, with some ice cold beer, grilled hot dogs, and… a pile of comics. Today’s the day in which I’ve finally decided to dive into this year’s TCAF haul.
And some, while not directly related to video games in the least bit, should still appeal to those who dig game-like aesthetics. Like the above, Frontier #1: Uno Moralez, the debut book from pal of Attract Mode Ryan Sands‘ brand new comics/zine label.
It’s been two weeks since the second installment of Comics Vs. Games, in beautiful Toronto, Canada. And how did the opening shindig, the first ever Bit Bazaar, plus Attract Mode in general fare? Very well, thank you very much. First, highlights from the official kick off!
For Comics Vs. Games 2 to be exact, which officially kicks off at Bento Miso, tonight, 7pm!
Time to detail the second leg of Attract Mode’s upcoming two city/two show tour. And what’s after New York City and NYU? Why, Toronto and TCAF, to help celebrate Comics Vs. Games 2!
We went over the basics a couple weeks back, but time for some finer details. As well as a sneak peek as some of the stunning pieces that our pals have produced for this year’s Comics Vs. Games Gallery.
The above is somewhat a sequel to the runaway hit from Comics Vs. Games 1, and has Kyle Fewell combining his two greatest loves yet again: video games and cats. But what else does this year’s show have in store? Let’s see…
