Giant line-up of guests & programming set for 2014

Howard Chaykin and Nick Mamatas

Howard Chaykin and Nick Mamatas are just two of the many guests joining us for the 2014 Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival.

With more guests, programs and vendors than ever before, the seventh annual Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival, held at the Clark County Library (1401 E. Flamingo Road) on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is on its way to being the biggest and best in the event’s history!

Featured guests include legendary comic book artist and writer Howard Chaykin, Viz Media editor and novelist Nick Mamatas, and indie comics writing machine Russell Lissau. They’ll be joined by returning names such as Chris Staros, Spencer Brinkerhoff III and the Fillbach Brothers, plus a host of other comic creators, filmmakers and experts.

In addition to fans being able to peruse comics, toys and other merchandise at the many vendor booths in our courtyard marketplace, they can also meet artists, writers and independent publishers in Artist Alley. This year’s programming offers something for everyone, including panel discussions with our guests, how-to sessions on drawing and digital coloring, intimate writing and crafting workshops, film screenings, and much more. Plus: Plenty of yummy treats from a host of food trucks!

As always, live music will also be a distinctive component of the Comic Book Festival, as two Seattle-based musicians take the stage inside the library’s main theater to perform geek-tacular pop songs: the ever-popular Kirby Krackle and VVCBF first-timer Hello, The Future!. As well, this year’s event will offer more activities for all ages, including superhero mask-making, face painting, and the return of our popular Art Jam.
