The Dublin Eight Comic Arts Festival is an ongoing series of small press comic book events. Our next event will be at the Dublin Food Co-op
on Sunday, July 23rd from 11am-5pm.
DECAF is organized by Matthew Melis & The Comics Lab of the Stray Lines comic collective.
SMALL PRESS COMICS
Small press comics can be a nebulous term in the comic book world. They can be as small as a photocopied zine and as big as Scott Pilgrim vs The World. We generally use the term to mean creator-owned, independent comics. They can be handmade, self-published or released by small press publishers.
DECAF is a small press comic book event, created to showcase local comic creators and celebrate the spectrum of Irish sequential art. The small press comic scene has been growing in Ireland for years, but Irish comic creators often travel across the globe to find Comic Arts Festivals to exhibit their work. We feel it's time for some Comic Arts Festivals closer to home!
