Chip Zdarsky at VanCAF 2017

Hey there VanCAF fans, did you hear that we announced our first Featured Guest today for VanCAF 2017? It’s CHIP ZDARSKY! He’s an award-winning comic artist and a writer, and you probably know him if you’ve read Sex Criminals or Jughead or Kaptara or Howard the Duck or Star-Lord! We’re psyched to have him visit all the way from Toronto on both days of the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival this year (Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21) and if you want to meet him he’ll be exhibiting all weekend!

Who’s coming to VanCAF?

We’ve made some major updates to the VanCAF site, including the addition of Creator and Publisher profiles! Why not start reviewing the lists now, to start planning who you want to meet at the show? We’ll be updating both lists over the coming weeks, as well as adding the books that are debuting at VanCAF, which you can find over on the Books page.
