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).

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. THE NERDAISSANCE. It is a period of comedic war. Rebel slashfics, striking from a hidden Id, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Superego. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plots to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DISAPPROVAL STAR, a humorless space station with enough disdain to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, The Nerdaissance races home aboard her slashfic, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore laughter to the galaxy….
