In October of 2009 Happy Harbor Comics started an art show that would allow creators to explore the mechanics and themes within the medium of comics. We've explored covers, gutters, the reveal, and more. In March of 2019 we present our theme of MENTORS, a powerful storytelling tool used in superhero comics, throughout Manga, and across all genres.

We invite all creators to submit their proposals for MENTORS to, by no later than Dec 31, 2018.

Proposals should include;
- Your name
- Preferred contact email and phone number
- Brief description of the concept of your piece
- Approximate size of your finished piece and list of any special requirements, if necessary

Accepted pieces will need to be delivered to Happy Harbor by Tuesday February 26, 2019 in a ready-to-hang/display condition.

Additional details will follow upon acceptance of proposal. We look forward to seeing what your amazing minds bring to the show in our 10th year!

Opening Night kick off party, Friday March 1 (from 7pm to 9pm)
Show runs March 2nd - March 14th at Happy Harbor.

This show is dedicated to our friend Gilbert Bouchard who passed away in the spring of 2009.
His good friend Suzette Chan and CBC co-worker Peter Brown shared wonderful memories at the inagural show
that allowed those of us who knew Gilbert to smile at his memory and for those of us who didn't to feel a little closer to him.

Dedicating the show, Visons of Comics, to Gilbert was the inspiration of Yves Lafleur.

To remember Gilbert, visit the 2018 show, 2016 show, 2015 show, 2014 show, 2012 show, 2010 show, and the inaugural 2009 show.
