VANCAF 2012 Con Report & Gallery

The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival was welcomed with gorgeous weather this Saturday. Northwest crowds now have a reputation for filling out events like this, and today was no exception. The convention floor was packed with attendees and exhibitors. The Yaletown Roundhouse was a great venue with a mixture of modern and historical decor.

Google’s pretty good, but it can’t introduce you to all these comics in one search query.
