VanCAF is proud to announce that we have partnered with local comic book shop Lucky’s Comics to create a new on-site experience: Lucky’s Lounge.
Lucky’s Lounge brings together artists focused on DIY and self-made books, and features artists who are creating dynamic, experimental, and inspirational work. It’s a chance to create a space that elevates the voices of unique artists who hold a special place within the comics landscape.
