Starting today and continuing through Sunday is the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. VanCAF looks to have become quite the formidable event, in part because of the strong local comics scene in the city but also because the organizers have continued to make it a priority to offer innovative, international-level programming and guests.
The show features Pia Guerra, Simon Hanselman, Emily Carroll, Marc Bell, Roman Muradov, I Brain Eater, and a ton of other superstars of the comics world. Lots of great events and panels as well, plus an indy space hosted by Lucky’s Books.
Some events start Friday, but the main exhibitor space and panels kick off on Saturday.
Saturday, May 18th and Sunday, May 19th at the Roundhouse, 181 Roundhouse Mews.
Admission is free.
