The Cloudscape Comics Society is a coalition of indie comic book artists centered in Metro Vancouver who publish yearly anthologies and foster a community where BC comic creators can network with each other while developing their craft and continuing to push the boundaries of the comic book medium. In 2007, a Vancouver artist named Jeff Ellis decided to bring together several local indie comic book creators for a collective project. A year later, Robots, Pine Trees, & Broken Hearts was published, nine stories written by nine independent BC comic artists. This was soon followed by Historyonics, an anthology of historical fiction. Then in 2009 there was Funday Sunnies, a tribute to the classic Sunday colour comic strips; in 2010 Exploded View, a science fiction anthology where each artist explored their own unique vision of the future; in 2011, 21 Journeys, a full-colour collection centered around travel and self-discovery; in 2012, Giants of Main Street, tales of fantasy and magic set within urban environment; and in 2013, Waterlogged, a hardcover two-colour collection of ocean-themed stories in numerous genres. Every year at least one comic anthology is produced by Cloudscape, each anthology centered around a unique theme so that they stand alone and encourage all artists to push our ideas in new directions. As a fast-growing organization dedicated to the advancement of the indie BC comics community, we are always exploring new projects, constantly seeking new ways to expand the scope of our members.
