"Toronto-based artists Jo SiMalaya Alcampo and Althea Balmes have been hosting pulp fiction weekly meet-ups since July 2017.
Participants have been encouraged to network, to create and bring their comics/komiks to completion. Zines, tiny photocopied and stapled books that are often with political text and images, deck the Lillian H. Smith Library branch.
Kwentong Bayan Collective believes that a new model for komiks and pop culture events will take shape over time."
