Comic book nerds, pop culture fans, and general geekery aficionados – get ready for something completely different!
From May 31 to June 1, Servus Place in St. Albert will play host to the eek! Comic and Pop Culture Fest, a brand new show for comic, pop culture, and sci-fi fans, artists, and creators.
Two sections of the building will be filled with local and national artists, writers, performers, Lego fans, comics, pop culture exhibitors, and much more.
For those who like to cosplay, there will be contests for best costumes.
“We want to do this annually and have a great comic and pop culture show for the region and beyond to enjoy.” – Rob LeLacheur, Director
What can you expect from the exhibitors? Anything from graphic novel artists to Lego salespeople. Steampunk vendors to pop culture collectibles. Everything geeky to all things nerd-related.
Notable exhibitors include Happy Harbor Comics, horror and dark fantasy artist Nat Jones, Fable Entertainment, Vicky Lau’s Vivid Vision, playwright and author Marty Chan, graphic designer and artist Sylvia Moon, and the Animethon 21 team, amongst many others.
“We’ve put in lots of hard work and hours to make sure it’s a fun and entertaining show and we really feel it’s coming together nicely,” says Rob LeLacheur, the show’s Director.
“We want to do this annually and have a great comic and pop culture show for the region and beyond to enjoy.”
Sponsored by Shaw, the St. Albert Leader, Yelp, the Edmonton Sun, Pattison, Skybox Grill, and Guru Digital Arts College, eek!’s team hopes to bring a much-needed pop culture exhibition to the St. Albert and greater Edmonton area.
Tickets are now available online at www.theeek.com. The Early Bird Special is on until April 15th and offers a full weekend pass for the price of a single day. (You should probably get on that right now.)
