Cloudscape’s Comics in Transit Gallery Reception

Where: Laura C Muir Theatre, Douglas College
700 Royal Ave, New Westminster, BC V3M 5Z5

When: Monday, March 26
5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

On March 26, join us for an exhibition of all the posters from our “Comics in Transit 2017” posters at the Douglas College Muir Theatre Foyer.  Nine Canadian refugees had their epic stories of struggle and survive converted into dramatic comics by nine BC comic artists, and these nine stories were scattered around bus shelters all over Vancouver in October, 2017.  This gallery reception will be our first time showing them all together! Come down to Douglas College for a drink, a chance to purchase Cloudscape books, and a chance to see the full posters and meet the artists! For more information, visit the Gallery Reception Facebook event page.


Comics in Transit now displayed at Cloudscape HQ

Our latest Comics in Transit told the tales of many refugees in comic form, stories of their trials and tribulations coming to Canada. The comic pages were large, as each one was put in bus shelters for the public to read. Now the comic are available at our studio. To see more, check out the Cloudscape Instragram page, and then stop by our headquarters to read these compelling stories in person.

VanCAF is this weekend!

The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is this weekend, Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Yale Town. This is Vancouver’s biggest comic convention dedicated to indie comics, self-publishers, and individual creators, and, as always, Cloudscape is prominent featured. We have our own tables (table H5 in the gym) and numerous prominent Cloudscape contributors (Jonathon Dalton, Steve LeCouilliard, Johnny Christmas, Nina Matsumoto, Kathleen Jacques, Alina Pete, and more) have their own tables as well. Many of our contributors will also be giving talks and workshops on the various parts of the comic process.

If you want to get more involved in Vancouver’s comic scene, discover exciting new indie comics, and chat with your favourite creators face-to-face, then you should stop on by.

Hope to see you all at VanCAF!



Send Cloudscape your comic pitches!

Though we at Cloudscape are best known for our quality comic anthologies, in the last couple of years we have begun publishing the books of individual members, such as Kathleen Gros’ Last Night at Wyrmwood High, Steve LeCouilliard’s Una the Blade, and now Sean Karemaker’s Feast of Fields and Jason Turner’s Fur Valley. Now Cloudscape is  excited to open the door for general graphic novels submissions!

Do you have an idea for a new graphic novel in any genre? Or perhaps are you interested in publishing a compilation of your webcomic or even in editing a comic anthology of your own? We have the experience and resources to help make that happen. To learn more, check out Pitching a Comic to Cloudscape. We look forward to hearing from you.
