Guest Creator - Caanan Grall

We're thrilled to share that Caanan Grall, who unfortunately couldn't make it last year due to the devastating fires, will be back this year. We're very excited to welcome them to Kelowna ComiCon 2024!

Hailing from Australia and currently residing in Canada, Caanan's journey as an artist has been nothing short of remarkable. From his early days at DC Comics to his Eisner-nominated webcomic, Max Overacts, Caanan's artistic prowess and storytelling abilities have captivated audiences worldwide.


Caanan's foray into the comic world began with DC Comics and their online imprint, Zuda Comics. His work on Celadore, an urban fantasy epic featuring vampires, fairies, genies, unicorns, and a whirlwind of imaginative elements, showcased his unique artistic style and storytelling vision. Despite the imprint's closure, Celadore managed to see the light of day as a printed book, gaining recognition for its boundary-pushing narrative.


Undeterred by the challenges faced in the industry, Caanan launched his own webcomic, Max Overacts. This endearing series quickly gained traction, earning an esteemed Eisner nomination in its very first year. Over the course of several years, Max Overacts charmed readers with its heartfelt storylines and vibrant illustrations. Unfortunately, Caanan's creative journey took an unexpected turn when he was forced to pause due to a brain tumor.


While Max Overacts remains close to Caanan's heart, his talent has graced other notable comics as well. He has contributed to renowned titles such as Atomic Robo and Giant Days, lending his artistic flair to enrich their narratives. Additionally, Caanan created the comic Parallel U for the relaunch of Muse magazine, a science publication aimed at young readers. For an impressive six years, his artwork and storytelling skills mesmerized readers, bringing science to life in an engaging and accessible manner.


After a long time away from Max, Caanan has returned to new episodes of his webcomic at occasionalcomics.com, continuing the adventures of a boy who wants to connect with people through his acting but nobody seems to get him.

So come join us for Kelowna ComiCon 2024 and come check out all of the exciting things Caanan has in store for us!
