New Guests At The Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show!

Legendary comic artist Joe Rubinstein will be at the Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show to meet fans, sign comics, sketch your favourite characters and take commission orders. Joe has been working in the comic industry since 1975 and has inked every major artist, character and book for every major company throughout his near 35 years in the business! We're proud to have such a legend in the industry at the Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show!

We're also pleased to annouce that in conjunction with the Edmonton Collectible Toy & Comic Show, the home-grown documentary on geek culture 'Pegwarmers' will make it's Edmonton premiere on Saturday, March 28th, 3:00 PM at the Stanley A. Milner Library Theatre in Downtown Edmonton.

This will be an all-ages, free screening for everyone involved in the documentary, including members (as well as friends and family) of the '501st', 'The Knights of the Northern Realm', 'EGOR', 'KAG Kanada', 'Edmontoooine' and pretty much everyone else involved in the documentary. Plus there will be a few door prizes, as well as a Q&A segment with director Jason Hoehn after the screening and after hours entertainment provided by Brock Skywalker!
