Like many unique and innovative comic creators, Artist Alley Comics Fest (AACF) was founded. It made its home in Portland, Oregon and debuted on Sunday, August 2, 2015, at The Spritely Bean, the late indie comics café. AACF gave the opportunity and visibility to independent comic artists who have traditionally been overlooked or shut out by events motivated to give a platform to established voices.

The festival is a minimally curated event without aesthetic or narrative quality assessment. Judgments for acceptance as an exhibitor are based on an artist's ownership of their work, a prohibition of hate speech and advocation of violence, and a minimum approximation to the definition of "comics artwork."

The goal is to showcase the talents of independently creative voices in comics by giving the public a place to interact with comic creators. While publishers and distributors are welcome to apply for exhibition space, those who are willing to be represented by comic creators are likely to receive greater consideration.

Come support many talented independent comic creators selling their creative and amazing work. This is a free general admission event.
