Hey guys, I was just wondering if there are any Vancouver comic patrons out there in the Drunk Duck universe. I myself reside near Vancouver, Canada and as a citizen of Vancity I have become quite accustomed to the series of comicons Vancouver has hosted throughout the years.
For over a decade, Vancouver Comicon events have been held at Heritage Hall. The events you guys might find most interesting of course, are the one-day comicon exhibitions. There's always plenty of dealer tables with endless voids of comic collections, toys and other collectibles, apparel, DVDs, and plenty of old vintage merchandise. What often attracts the fair people of Vancity however, are the wide ranges of special guests. The Vancouver Comicon always manages to rangle up an eclectic range of artistic talent in the fiels of webcomics. Memorable guests have included Shannon Wheeler (Too Much Coffee Man), James Lloyd (Futurama Comics, Simpson Comics, Other Stuff), David Boswell (Reid Fleming: World's Toughest Milkman), Damian Wilcox (Dorkboy Comics), Jim Woodring, Jim Mahfood (Grrl Scouts, Stupid Comics), and many, many more. There's always original sketches, merch, and prints available of some top-notch work. I myself always come home with a score of original sketches, a lot of which are currently pinned to my walls. And let's not forget all the door prizes and the free giveaways. Yeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Oh, and if you've got some of your own shit to shoot, you're free to purchase a table and pimp your work. ;)
So what I'm trying to say here is: if you live in the Vancouver area, come check this Vancouver Comicon krizzle out. They're usually held monthly, typically on a Sunday, and there's always some new shit goin' down. There's an upcoming show coming up in November, and the details are as follows:

So if you've ever been to a Vancouver Comicon event or plan to go to one, discuss! And hell, if you're just plain interested you're free to discuss as well. But anyways, I'm done. Sorry for such a long post guys.
