Long time no post!
Well I’m happy to report that i have a new collection of comics coming out this spring! It will be ready for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival or TCAF this May, and I’m really excited to share it with you! Here’s a little write up:
“Life Without Parole is a collection of comics by illustrator/artist Robb Mirsky. Cumulated from annuals of his out-of-print mini comics, random sketchbook imaginings and comics published elsewhere, Mirsky’s collection makes its debut at TCAF 2018!
The subject matter ranges from bank robberies to baseball games; from dogs with jobs to lemons with attitude. This 76 page riot is sure to have you laughing and cringing, giggling and hollerin’ (often at the same time)!
The book is also one of four new releases from the Read More Comix gang coming this May!”
So, I’ll see you at TCAF?!
Last comic i made of 2017.
Lots of things happening. Lots of things to do. Stay tooned!
Every goddamn day…
Anyone else tired of the constant bombardment of bullshit and wanna jump off a cliff?… I’ll meet you at the bottom…..
Hey pals! Have a great first day back at school, from yer old friend Mirsk!
So, i was part of an art show not too long ago (my piece is above), and was interviewed after it wrapped up.
Follow the link to read me blabber on!
Read More Comix #3 is out! Well, it’s been out since May, but I haven’t updated this blog in a bit…. so here it is now! New comics by James Spencer, David Craig and me!

A little ode to one of my favourite neighbourhoods here in Toronto, getting ready to be destroyed for new condos, and “progress”. After this week, any business in Mirvish Village will cease to exist. It’s sad that such an iconic neighbourhood has to go, but this is happening all over the city. Paving over old, iconic parts of the city in favour of big box condos, and corporate businesses seems to be the norm these days. In about ten years, you probably won’t even recognize Toronto as it stands now. And as the city becomes increasingly overpriced and harder to make ends meet in, shops like the ones in Mirvish Village will have a hard time existing.
We had a really good time while it lasted..
Please note: this comic doesn’t cover most of Mirvish Village, just the places i spent most of my time while there.
Thought i would share a comic i made for the 20th Anniversary Comic Jam book. Also appearing in said book is a nice little article write up on our comics crew ‘Read More Comix’ by Peter Sanfilippo. I figured most people won’t get their hands on the book, so why not share a comic from it? Sharing is caring after all!
It occurred to me that this here blog has gotta so clogged up with show posters (nothing wrong with that, of course!), that some folks might forget that i also make comics. Well, i almost forgot too, but i scribbled this one down in my sketchbook the other day. So, mind the scratchy, rough drawings (i didn’t use a pencil..) and the clunky colours (i don’t know how to scan markers properly) and enjoy something i find myself not the worst at- making dumb jokes!
Save the date, and come have a few with us! Long running Comic Jam here in Toronto is getting older than some of it’s members (well, maybe a couple – bring ID!) and i made a little comic to promote and celebrate it! Oh, and apparently that “Live Interview” segment will be with, among others, an interview with Read More Comix!…. So, come watch things get awkward, and sloppy!
