The Berkeley Comic Show is back?!! I'd like to say that I haven't been outside or socializing publicly for a year; but honestly, nothing much has changed. Can't wait!
In this time of COVID-19: I don't know what I'm looking more forward to... the next Berkeley Comic Show or a real haircut.
BERKELEY COMIC SHOW'S NEXT DATE: Saturday, August 7, 2021
Update: We’re Back!
We’re excited to announce that the Berkeley Comic Show is back! Our next show will be on Saturday, August 7th at the El Cerrito Veterans Memorial Building at 6401 Stockton Ave., El Cerrito with our special guest: superhero comic book artist Dan Brereton, best known for his series The Nocturnals.
We were hoping to do our traditional ‘First Week of August’ show at our usual location (the Berkeley Adult School), but they’ve been using their Multi-Purpose Room as a staging area for the Remote Learning Programs around the city, so it is unavailable to us for now.
The room at the Veterans Memorial Building is slightly smaller, but there will still be more comic books than most large shows, as we only have comic books and comic art at our old school show!
More details will follow. We just wanted to announce the date because we’re so excited to get the show going again, and want you all to mark your calendars. Please tell your friends, send us your wish lists (scroll down this page to see), and bring comics for Dan to sign!

Update: April 4th Show Cancelled
Hello, everyone. Our April 4, 2020 show has been cancelled due to health and safety concerns. We will still get in four shows this year. Watch this space for the next date — probably sometime in May or June. Stay safe! — Marc
