Calgary Expo 2017: Our Home Away

Sean Tonelli - Monday, April 03, 2017
The snow has started melting, the birds are singing and the days are growing longer. This can only mean one thing... It's time for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. You can find us at our usual hang out, Renegade double end cap (booths 1222-1322). This year we will have our dear friends present including Edmonton based Redcoats-ish creator Jeff Martin, The Loxleys and Confederation co-author Niigaanwewidam Sinclair, our publisher and Loxleys and Confederation co-author Alexander Finbow. Also joining us is Shame and Underworld author Lovern Kindzierski. Nyco Rudolph will be stopping by on his break from Artist Alley.

And if that's not enough, Author Alexander Finbow and artist Nyco Rudolph will be hosting the official premier of the most Canadian book to have ever Canada'd When Big Bears Invade. Join the dynamic duo Friday, April 28th at 18:00 MT in Palomino H. The Canadian sensation will be presented for the first time to the public. A world premiere. Alex and Nyco will  perform this story of Canadian cities facing destruction at the hands of giant bears... Including a bear destroying a model Calgary.  There will be bears, laughs and a very special guest... Awkward Silence... Be sure to add this special event to your calendar.

His work includes the long running creator owned Hockeypocalyspe series; historical comedy Redcoats-ish, published by Renegade Arts Entertainment; acclaimed webcomic HEAT: The Space Age of Pro Wrestling; and his newest project, Where Is Zog?, published by Heavy Metal. When not at comic book conventions, he can usually be found in the section of his living room that he refers to as his “comics bunker,” which doesn't make him sound crazy at all.
