Hard to believe that 2015 is the 10th anniversary of the incredible Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, but it is and, for my tenth year in a row, I’ll be there promoting my comics along with some of my dearest friends and collaborators. It’s one of my favorite shows each year and this special anniversary edition is looking to be the best one yet.
I’ll be set up at Artist Alley Table X20 beside Edwin Huang (Skullkickers) and Max Dunbar (Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate).
I’ll have convention exclusives (including a limited number of copies of the Wayward Vol. 1 limited edition hardcover left over from ECCC), and a special Calgary Expo variant of Wayward #6 with art by Max Dunbar and Tamra Bonvillain.
I have a new pin-up piece in the Calgary Expo Artbook this year:
In addition, the Skullkickers appear in a special 6 page short story created for this year’s Calgary Expo Program Guide. Rex and Rolf storm the convention in their search for a Baby Thool and chaos ensues. If you’re at the show make sure you check it out.
I’ll also be appearing on a couple panels over the weekend:
