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 

*Note: Aaron Buck will not be selling his one off AI art book at the Vancouver Comic & Toy Show*

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 five books on Amazon, which can also be found on the shelves at Indigo on Robson in downtown Vancouver.

Each of his four children's books will be featured at the show and offer something different and original:

"Mind of Cities" is an art book filled with fifteen hand-drawn, highly detailed fantasy cities each with their own short story which have hidden words that point to secrets to find in the cities themselves. You could say it's an art book, a story book and puzzle book all wrapped up in one!

"Operation: Rainfall": There's much more to rain than you think. Up in the clouds, each raindrop has its own story. They're born to do one thing: Rain. This is the story of one little raindrop who was smaller than the rest but determined to make it pour.

"Planets Unite": One sun. Eight planets. One dwarf planet. What do they all have in common? Not much, except for the fact that one gigantic comet is threatening their very lives. Will they be able to put their differences aside and come together to save the Solar System? "Planets Unite" tells a fun story that children will enjoy while also teaching them about the planets in our Solar System.

"The King and the Very Big Ring": This King can just never have enough of anything. Whether it's a ring so big he needs servants to carry it to ordering his people to build him a mountain of ice cream for him to ski on - anything is possible in this silly story of a self-centered King who goes on a journey to find the biggest ring of them all.

Verne Andru 

Born in 1955, he grew up in the dawn of the television era with its wacky worlds of Beatle mania and Bugs Bunny. While he dabbled in music and drawing, it wasn't until he met the crew from Captain Canuck Comics at a high school "career day" that he found his calling. He quickly became the studio pest, dropping by weekly to show off his latest and get a much-needed serving of humble pie.

Out of high school he took a job with Canadian Pacific Railway where he set about to learn the fine art of comic book illustrating, partially to help stay awake during the night shift. His career got a boost with his first paid job - cel painting on "Blowhard", a National Film Board animated short. This was followed by animation assignments for Hanna Barberra's Saturday morning lineup. At the same time, he continued working in comics, illustrating stories for Phantacea, doing ink and color on Captain Canuck and cover art for Charleton Comics Group.

During a feature assignment on Nelvana's "Rock and Rule", he worked with a leading special effects team and became intrigued with the opportunities computers held for fantasy creators. Upon completing that project he attended college, graduating on the honor roll a few years later as a computer systems specialist.

Given the state of technology in the 1980's, it would take another decade for it to catch up to Verne's vision. He spent that time teaching computer sciences as well as doing creative, design and advertising in Toronto and Vancouver. He provided the creative behind a number of high-tech success stories including "Simply Accounting", a brand that remains the best selling small business accounting software to this day.

Verne has always been on the leading edge, applying new technology in novel ways. Desktop publishing replaced traditional typesetting and pre-press. He pioneered digital paint for location and character color styling on animated series work. His state-of-the-art desktop animation system produces a range of content for web and broadcast, including the highly successful Kid's Club spots for Swedish furniture retailer, IKEA.

Verne creates best in Vancouver where he enjoys life with family and music.
