BC Tourism Talks BC Comics

Cloudscape president Oliver McTavish-Wisden recently wrote an article showcasing comics in BC that was featured on the BC Tourism website:

“Most visitors to BC come for the gorgeous natural scenery, renowned dining scene and local culture. But in addition to these iconic BC attractions, there are plenty of opportunities for those seeking a more niche experience. For example, BC is becoming increasingly know for a growing community of cartoonists making a name for themselves locally and beyond. If you’re a comic buff, or a creator yourself, BC has a lot to offer in terms of sights, stories and activities. Read on to gain a bit of a head start in exploring BC’s rich comic scene.

A number of artists and writers call BC home. Nina Matsumoto, Ian Boothby and James Lloyd all work for Bongo Comics, Vancouverite Sam Logan writes and draws the highly popular Sam and Fuzzy webcomic, and Johnnie Christmas and Ed Brisson authored Sheltered (possibly the greatest pre-apocalyptic story), published through Image Comics. Colin Upton, a fixture in the alternative arts scene since the 1980s, can often be seen walking around Vancouver and leaving behind mini-comics and ink stains in the various cafés he frequents. Also notable are Brandon Graham and Simon Roy, BC artists who’ve worked on the ground-breaking Prophet series, a comic that is proving to be critical in reviving the sci-fi genre on a large scale. And that isn’t even the tip of the iceberg: hundreds of talented indie comic artists spin their stories on our shores.”
