Created and edited by Toronto-based artists Patrick Kyle, Ginette Lapalme and Chris Kuzma, Wowee Zonk has been a champion of unconventional comics work and Canadian content from its inception as a hand-printed zine in 2007. Since that time, Wowee Zonk has grown exponentially; spanning three issues, it has published the work of eleven up-and-coming Toronto artists. The third issue was published by Koyama Press in 2010 and was nominated for the Pigskin Peters Award (which recognizes non-traditional and avant-garde comics) at the 2011 Doug Wright Awards.
Wowee Zonk 4 is the largest and most ambitious issue to date, featuring a number of Canadian and international contributors, each with their own unique approach to storytelling and image making. This issue will include new works by Marc Bell, Adam Buttrick, Mark Connery, Steph Davidson, Donald Dixon, Ryan Dodgson, Andrei Georgescu, Benjamin Hettinga, and Alex Schubert, as well as contributions from the editors Patrick Kyle, Ginette Lapalme and Chris Kuzma.
Wowee Zonk 4 explores the possibilities of an entirely unique medium and continues the tradition of turning cartooning on its head.
