Dublin Comic Arts 2017

DECAF logo

The Dublin Eight Comic Arts Festival is an ongoing series of small press comic book events. Our premiere event will be at the Fumbally Stables on Sunday, April 23rd from 11am-4pm.

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!

DECAF is organized by Matthew Melis & The Comics Lab of the Stray Lines comic collective.

And that’s not all! Debbie, Elida and Alan will perform stories live, check out the teaser below.

We are interested in exploring the potential of this medium, using it to tell our stories, about our Irish experience, with our irreverent point of view, they say. We’re eager to bring more Irish stories to a wider audience, to give a platform for all the talent we see every month in Dublin Comic Jam and The Comics Lab. We’re a nation of storytellers; now we’re ready to tell our stories in this format too.
