Field Trip: Lucky's Comics in Vancouver, BC, Canada!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Field Trip 11 Oct 2012 2:13 PM

A couple of weekends ago, I was in Vancouver, BC to take a writing workshop with Lynda Barry (eeeeee!!!!), and my friends and I made a stop to Lucky's Comics!

Lucky's is a wee store, but totally jam-packed with amazing books! I didn't even know where to start looking! I was really impressed with their wide variety of kid-friendly books, from classics to Nikki McClure

Hey, it's Robin McConnell of Inkstuds and Kelly Froh of Short Run fighting over a copy of Dal Tokyo! And over Kelly's shoulder, I spy an anthology edited by Fanta's very own Jen Vaughn! 

Naturally, I was thrilled to see so many Fantagraphics titles on the shelves -- and they didn't even know I was stopping in, so it's not like any of this was staged! I was also excited by the boxes of self-published mini-comix (not shown, but seriously pillaged), and they've even got a gallery room in the back, although they were between shows on the weekend we were there.

So, if you're ever in Vancouver, get lucky and stop by Lucky's Comics, located at 3972 Main Street! Thanks to shopkeeper, Will, for the Canadian hospitality, and to Robin & Kelly for taking me there! (Postcard above, by the register, designed by my old pal Vicki, aka Meomi!)
