June 11th 2017 marked Vancouver Island Comic Cons first year.
With over 75 exhibitors, a cosplay contest, attractions and panels, and an amazing presentation from Disney Studios, Chris Williams, the show was a success!
The idea of holding a convention in The Town of Sidney started through a conversation at The Sidney Museum while they were creating their exhibit "Up, Up and Away! Comic-book Superheroes and our Culture". What at first was just a plan to bring together a few local artists for a Canada 150 event, quickly grew into a full comic convention, and we are now going into our second year with the Sidney BIA and Creative BC sponsoring the event.
