About Comic Sans: Comic Sans focuses on the limitless artistic side of Canadian comics and celebrates a broad range of approaches to storytelling. Some of the stories in Comic Sans are biographical or autobiographical, some are familiar and others have sprung from the imaginations of their creators. Comics don’t need to be constrained within the square frame of a comic panel and the work in this show expands well beyond it and even well beyond the page. Comic Sans is a celebration of the endlessly creative medium of graphic narratives.    

Comic Sans is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Chris Reyns-Chikuma, University of Alberta and Lindsey Sharman, Art Gallery of Alberta. s.
