Christie Pits

Somedays you're the nail, but on the good days you're the hammer.
 

Christie Pits,

is an upcoming graphic novel telling the incredible true history of when young Jewish and Italian immigrants squared off against Nazi-inspired thugs on the streets of Toronto. The story behind the 10,000 person race-riot for the soul of the great nation of Canada is written by Jamie Michaels, and illustrated by the prodigious Doug Fedrau.

We're making real stories for real change. Although history never repeats itself to the letter, we can draw lessons from the past. A culture of hate always precedes real violence. The Christie Pits Riots offer lessons that are depressingly topical, but no less relevant   today than they were in 1933.

         Historical Fiction?

The terms may seem at odds, but we assure you we've done our homework. Our lawyer assures us that the story and characters are entirely fictional, but we draw our universe (literally) from countless of hours of thorough research utilizing, primary sources, audio testimonies, archival material, interviews, and microfiche to give readers an authentic feel of the times.

It's exciting to have the opportunity to tackle important projects. We're grateful to the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba for the support to help us make real stories for real people.
