Crouch End Comic Art Festival debuts next month

Crouch End Comic Art Festival 2014

The inaugural Crouch End Comic Art Festival (CECAF) will take place at the Earl Haig Hall, London on 8th November 2014. The show will host the best and brightest cartoonists and independent publishers currently active in the UK comic scene.

“The past five years have seen a huge growth in creators, publishers and consumers of comics,” note the organisers. “Crouch End is home to some of these cartoonists, so it seems natural to bring this type of event to the hot creative hub of N8. Following on from the energy of this summer’s smash Crouch End Festival, CECAF will provide the opportunity for all ages to experience the varied and engaging world of the independent comic publisher.’

On the day there will be over 25 exhibitors selling a variety of comics, graphic novels, prints and all sorts of visual matter, including Avery Hill Publishing, Claude T.C., Cliodhna Lyons, Francesa Cassavetti, Gareth Brookes, Gary Northfield, Iella, Martin Eden, Oliver Lambden, Paul Rainey, Rob Wells, Sall-Anne Hickman, John Maybury, Tiny Pencil and Zoom Rockman, with more names to come.
