The Vancouver Comic and Toy Show is a trade show featuring collectible toys, superhero memorabilia, comic books and other similar pop culture items.
Vancouver Comic and Toy Show
In 2019 the Vancouver Comic and Toy Show took place on Sunday, February 24th, at the PNE Forum at 2901 East Hastings Street between 10:30 am and 6:00 pm.
This was the event’s first year at this venue. In previous years it has taken place at the Vancouver Croatian Cultural Centre.
General Admission in 2019 was $12. Children ages 12 and under were free.
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.
