Join First Choice at the Camosun Comics Conference this Sunday!

Camosun Comics Conference

First Comics Conference will be held at the Lansdowne Camosun College Campus here in Victoria, on Sunday, April 7, 2013. First Choice Books, one of the top Canada Self Publishing companies, will be joining comics from Vancouver and Victoria at this event.

One-day conference

The one-day conference is a celebration of the artistic and literary impact of comics and graphic novels.  The illustrations on exhibit have been created locally, nationally, and internationally.  Conference attendees will hear and see the process of visual storytelling.  They will be able to discuss the medium with its creators, teachers, publishers and other fans. There may be smiles on our comics faces but there is some serious talent underneath. Who doesn’t like a good laugh!

Artists Alley

A conference highlight will be the “artists alley” showcasing the publications and artwork created by the 16 students in this year’s graduating class.  There will also be lots of inspiration from numerous keynote speakers.

For more information, contact organizer Ken Steacy, Program Leader, Comics and Graphic Novels program 250-888-2939, .

First Choice Books co-owners Patrick and Melanie will be there to meet with authors and illustrators. As part of a self publishing Canada company, they’ll happily show off some of the comics titles our company has published. Hope to see you there!

PS We even met the world famous author of “Perogy the Cat” at the event  Gareth Gaudin.
