John Gallagher

At Uncannyknack Comics we're fans first. To this day that fandom has stayed consistent and diverse. John Gallagher built a reputation in the collector community for his brand of variant covers so it only seemed fitting that opening a personal imprint was the next step. Together with his two partners Scoott Rohan and Peter Turcotte (owner of local store Big Pete's Collectibles) we specialize in the indie and creator owned variant space, far from the overcrowded superhero market, providing covers for all genre material. We have a simple rule: It has to be a cover we'd want ourselves before we'd ever think of selling it to anyone and that will never change. Drop by our sales table and see what we have. John will be signing and remarking new and catalogue drops from 11 - 2.

Aaron Buck 

Since 2019, Aaron Buck has continued to make his mark among self-published authors in the Canadian book scene. In that short span, he’s published four books on Amazon, which can also be found on the shelves at Indigo on Robson in downtown Vancouver.

His three children’s books: “Operation: Rainfall,” “Planets Unite” and his newest release “The King and the Very Big Ring” will all be featured at the show. All of these books are instilled with Aaron’s silly humour and he knows that not only the children will enjoy them, but also the adults.

Aaron will also have exclusive prints from his “Mind of Cities” book, which is an art and fantasy story book unlike anything else in your current collection and is something all ages can enjoy. When you’re at the show, make sure to check out the “Ideas by Aaron” table!

Verne Andru 

An award-winning designer, Verne Andru is best known for his illustration, animation and directing work with some of the best including Captain Canuck, Universal, Ikea, and Nelvana’s animated cult-classic Rock & Rule.

Born in Vancouver, Canada during 1955, Verne dabbled in music and art but it wasn’t until he met the crew from Captain Canuck Comics at a high school career day that he found his calling. His film career took off with his first job painting animation cels on Blowhard, a National Film Board short, followed by animation assignments on Hanna Barbera’s Godzilla Power Hour and Jana of the Jungle Saturday-morning cartoon lineup.

Staying true to print, Verne was editor on two issues of “The Canadian Graphic Collector” in addition to his writing and illustration contributions. Comic work includes Phantacea, Captain Canuck, MARVEL and Charleton Comics. In addition to teaching comic book production and animation at the prestigious Vancouver Film School, Verne created the “Simply Accounting” name, designed Pigtronix’s flagship musical effects pedal and launched both into successful brands.

Driven to draw, Verne is working on new editions of the Captain Cannabis series he created in the nineteen-seventies. A unique mix of science fiction, dark comedy and gritty realism, it’s a fun story with great characters adventuring in an inspired universe told in a truly original voice.

Verne creates best in Vancouver, enjoying life with family and music.

Sgt Brenda Winpenny and S/Sgt. Lindsey Houghton will be on site to celebrate the official launch give away of the complete 3 issue mini series Streetlights!

Streetlights bio…
In 2019 the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC), B.C.’s integrated anti-gang police agency, and the Organized Crime Agency of British Columbia (OCABC) developed and released Issue 1 of “Streetlights” a first-of-its-kind comic book highlighting the journey of a group of teenagers faced with some of the challenges of growing up.

As part of the OCABC’s and CFSEU-BC’s End Gang Life gang awareness, education, prevention, and engagement initiative that was launched in 2013, Streetlights Issue 1 quickly became recognized as an innovative and creative way for youth and adults alike to learn about some of the risks and pathways into gangs and engage in conversations about how to build resiliency in youth. With the release of Streetlights Issues 2 and 3, which concludes the story of the group of friends, readers can follow the ups and downs of the characters as they navigate the often-difficult aspects of friendships, making good choices, and what getting involved in even a little bit of criminal activity can mean for their lives and futures.
