What to Expect at the Show

At the Vancouver Comic and Toy Show you can expect to see over a hundred tables with vendors selling everything from vintage comic books to superhero posters to collector action figurines. You can also expect to see a primarily male crowd including dads with their kids, plus a fairly long lineup at the door in the morning (although it moves at a reasonable rate).

In addition to all the items for sale, at the show there are comic and superhero artists on site to sign autographs.

Special guests in 2019 included Vancouver-based illustrator and storyboard artist Jeremy Simser, Transformers artist Marcelo Matere, comic book illustrator Jason Copland, superhero comic artist Stephen Sadowski, freelance comic illustrator Diana Greenhalgh and Captain Cannabis author Verne Andru. Also on site in 2019 was superhero, horror and science-fiction-fantasy artist John Gallagher.
