Ann Arbor Comic Arts Festival 2018

Ann Arbor Comic Arts Festival (A2CAF for short).

The Festival will still feature dozens of comics artists along with workshops, demonstrations and interactive drawing games. It will still be as kid- and family-friendly as ever. And attending the event will be free as always.

What we hope the new name makes clear is that young children aren’t the only ones who can enjoy a fun-packed Ann Arbor weekend filled with comics and creativity. We welcome teens and adults (always have) and offer a slate of guests and activities to meet a wide range of comics-related interests (ditto).

Jill Thompson at the Cherry Capital Comic Con 2018

Jill Thompson is a multiple Eisner Award winning artist who’s work includes The Scary Godmother series, Beasts of Burden, Magic Trixie and Wonder Woman: The True Amazon. Seriously, her water color art is amazing. Of course, we talk about the Scary Godmother and Beasts of Burden. We also talk about manga, anime and pro wrestling. Being the huge wrestling fans that we are, we talked about pro wrestling for a solid half hour in this interview.  I must note that we had to pause the interview while a young man and his father came up to the table to talk to Jill. Per Ms. Thompson’s request, the interview is left completely unedited. This was a wonderful interview and I hope that you check it out.

Gene Ha at the Cherry Capital Comic Con 2018

Gene Ha is an Eisner Award winning artist who has collaborated with the perennial Allen Moore to create Top 10 and Top 10: The Forty-Niners. We dive into his creator owned comic, Mae. Plus, we talk about Top 10, comics that have had an impact on him, his admiration for history, anime, manga, and we talk about a wonderful water color artist too. This interview was recorded at two separate times to capture all that I wanted to ask about his new comic Mae. Enjoy this interview with one of the nicest people I had the pleasure of interviewing.
