Calgary Comic Expo-con report thread139

Collector thirdgreenham private msg quote post Address this user
Hey guys and gals!

This thread is here to show you all what's going on at the Calgary Comic Expo here in Calgary Alberta Canada, this weekend. This show usually draws 80-100K people.

I'll have pictures, perhaps videos, sales reports, list of CBCS board members that I met, as well as a snapshot of how the market is.

Others are most welcome to chat and add their two cents. Also, those with questions, ask away!

Hope you enjoy this.

Andy

I never seem to have time or money when Calgary rolls around. I wish to God Winnipeg's con didn't suck so hard.

At the airport. Will be by the show later this afternoon with Greggy in tow.

I'll see what I can do about getting CBCS to have a rep at next years show.

Show was slow and steady on day 1, which was nice to see. Modern books moved well, but it was interesting to see how dead my Preacher run was. I guess the TV show hype has not hit Calgary yet.

There were plenty of deals to be had with several board vultures roaming the floors and throwing cash around, especially Greg and Joe. LOL

While the buying was good, the boardies make this a great show. I have been in Calgary for two days now and have not heard anyone beep their horn, and if I bump into someone they apologies to me. It's like bizzaro New York.
