Artist Alley Comics Fest 2023, August 5th, 11am-5pm

Artist Alley Comics Fest (AACF) is putting on a free event on Saturday, August 5th from 11am to 5pm at McDaniel High School. It’s free admission for the general public. The event will feature over 50 creators including artists and comic book creators who will be selling their own art, merchandise, and books/zines.

Come out and support many talented independent comic creators selling their creative and amazing work! This is a free general admission event!

Artist Alley Comics Fest 2023, August 5th, 11am-5pm

Like a great many unique and innovative comic creators, Artist Alley Comics Fest (AACF) was founded and made its home in Portland, Oregon and debuted on Sunday, August 2nd, in 2015, at The Spritely Bean, the late indie comics café. AACF gave the opportunity and visibility to independent comic artists who have traditionally been overlooked or shut out by events that are motivated to give platform to established voices.

The festival is a minimally curated event, without assessment of aesthetic or narrative quality. Judgements for acceptance as an exhibitor are based on an artist’s ownership of their work, a prohibition of hate speech and advocation of violence, and a minimum approximation to the definition of “comics artwork.”

Our goal is to showcase the talents of independently creative voices in comics by giving the public a place to interact with comic creators. While publishers and distributors are welcome to apply for exhibition space, those who are willing to be represented by comic creators are likely to receive greater consideration.
