Home to the most thought-provoking and engaging properties to come out of the small press.


2017 is going to be a VERY different year at conventions for V:IP, because we're changing up our game in some new and exciting ways!  We still have a rather active convention season throughout the year, but exhibiting is taking a backseat to some new opportunities as a panelist and moderator!

And when you DO find me behind the table, the focus won't be on our award-winning, "V:IPhase One" titles.  This year, we're putting the spotlight on our growing U Cre-8 Comics brand, while working on production of our range of V:IPhase Two titles!

Here's the list of where you'll find us in 2017!
