Calgary Expo!!
Calgary Expo!!

Hey guys!

Regular updates resume tomorrow, but I just wanted to take the time to remind all of my Canadian Weregeeks that I will be at the Calgary Comic Expo this weekend! (Non-Canadian geeks, I wish you could be here too. It’s a fun show!)

I always refer to Calgary Expo as my local con, even though it’s a two & half hour drive south of where I actually live.  (In Canada, a two and half hour drive is nothing. I routinely drive ten hours in a weekend to go visit home.) I’ve been going since the early days of the show, and it’s been really amazing to see how much it’s grown over the past few years. Now, it’s a HUGE show, attracting the likes of Mira Furlan, George Romero, and William Shatner.

And, this year, there will also big a big crowd of webcomics people! WOO!!

So, stop by, say hello, and keep your fingers crossed for me that book 3 won’t be delayed by the postal strike, because I *should* have it in time to debut it at this show!

    Wish I could go to that. I’ve been lucky enough to go to 2 anime cons in my time, and will hopefully get to go to more, but I’m not holding my breath. Good Luck with Book 3!

    Man I wish I could go there, but too bad I live too far away (Europe). Likewise good luck with book 3.

    Again, other than the pig tails Alina’s self portrait looks like Abbie. Isn’t anyone else a little scared?

    ummm… being someone who has known our dear Alina for many years… there is more about Abbie that is like Alina than anyone wants to admit. SQUIRREL!

    New reader here.
    I just can not believe I had not come across this comic till now.

    Too bad that I will just miss the Con since Origins is the week afterwards. YAY for Game Geekdome – “I” will be playing / GMing for Thenodrin – Fellowship of the White Star – d20-3.5 1900’s horror goodness.
    If any fellow geeks are there just look for the yellow “Sheppard” ribbon on my badge holder (evil grin)

    The Calgary Con is actually where I found out about your comic. I wish I could make it this year, but sadly the place that gives me monies needs me that weekend…

    Hope you have fun!

    Wish I could go George Ramero is one of my personal heros. Someone I know is going if you see a tall blonde guy with glasses and tapout clothing yell “DON’T TOUCH MY STAPLER” he’ll know what it means

  21. Alina, I do hope you might consider visiting Winnipeg for our own little comic expo:
    It’s at the end of October, I’m sure there’s still time for you to be a part of it this year. Don’t make me beg. 😉

    Love the outfit you’re wearing on this drawing, Alina. How come you don’t wear this when we see you? 😛 I hope you have a great time at the Calgary con, wish I could be there with you! Hugs,

    I got sick on the weekend and wasn’t able to attend. Wanted to though! You must live in Edmonton for that length of a drive. It’s a 1.5 hour drive from here in Red Deer. 😉

  27. Syster Says:

    As a Canadian, I wish I could be there. However, it’s more than 8 hours driving westward for me.

  28. LoneHowler Says:

    Bah Syster, I’ve driven over 14 hours for a con.
    Trust me Calgary Expo is so worth it (Though I may be biased since I’m Calgarian)
