Boise Comic Arts Festival

JUMP, Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 25-26

by

Comic book lovers may have noticed that the Boise Public Library's much-loved Library Comic Con isn't on this summer's calendar. But never fear—the popular day of cosplay, workshops, panels, vendor booths and more has been re-branded as the Boise Comic Arts Festival to fill a more specific local niche. The two-day festival has a new venue, JUMP, which will be filled to the brim with local and international artists ready to celebrate comics and make connections with fans. Guests for the 2018 gathering include Terry Blas, Daniel Way, Ben Dewey, Hazel Newlevant, Russell Brown, Matthew Seely, Rosemary Valero-O'Connell and many, many more. While the event is free for all ages, pre-registration is new this year, bringing with it perks like early access and entry into prize drawings.
