Hey all - a mighty quick one today as we continue to build a brand new store! (Look for some posts about that in the coming days). No fun insights, only wishes for sleep and coffee. Please note: While we are now operating in the new space, our internet and point of sale system are not. Turns out, even when you start these processes weeks and weeks in advance, others will find a way to slow things up. Anyway, until Telus gets their butts in gear, we are cash and credit only. And until the new point of sale system arrives, we can't check...

Hello everyone, and welcome to our last week at the current location! Yes, that's right, on Saturday August 27th, Danica and I are waving good-bye to this space that we called home for a little over a year, and are picking up stakes and heading out west. As of Wednesday, August 31st, you'll be able to find us at our new location - 10132, 151 Street - and while we'll be tired, we'll certainly be happy to be starting the next chapter of Variant Edition will all of you alongside us. Until then, our big Moving Sale is still happening, all the way til our very last day in this location! The...

It’s that time of year again! The seasons are beginning to change, and just because Variant Edition is in a new location, that doesn’t mean the events will stop. Nope, in fact, we’ll be having more! Brandon and I will be kicking off our tenure in the new space with an expanded swap meet. The same rules apply as before, but we’re holding it over an entire weekend! On Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, the swap will be open to all. Please bear with me, I’m still looking for a charity to donate the remaining items, but am taking suggestions...

Hey there everyone. It's a beautiful Wednesday, and we are just two short weeks away from opening in our brand new location - at 10132 151 Street here in Edmonton, Alberta! There's a lot that we have to do before then, and we're hoping you'll be able to help us out with one of the bigger problems we'll have: moving. Turns out, when you move, you have to take everything you have with you. Suffice to say, we'd like to move a whole lot less when the time comes...

First off, we’d like to thank everyone who has come into the store and contacted us to congratulate us on the upcoming changes. When you start a small business, you have certain plans in mind, and you never know just where life will take you. As it happens, this year we’re moving in a different direction. We’re moving to Canora.

As...

Hello everyone, and welcome to another week of pop culture excitement here at Variant Edition! As you discovered last week, Danica and I will be moving Variant Edition Comics + Culture over to the west end of Edmonton while Brendan keeps the current digs cozy with a to-be-named shop of his very own. Well, on Wednesday, we'll be announcing just where we'll be, and we couldn't be more excited to share the news with you. But until then...

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new Variant Edition website! As you can tell, we're not at full functionality here, and you'll have probably come across the odd weird fiddly bit that does not quite work yet. A lot has been happening here at the old VE HQ (as you might have guessed), including our old site falling apart due to changes in the updates for the theme we were running. Oh well. Onwards and upwards! This week's Incoming list is a few days late and light on the commentary, but just take a gander at that list and try and tell us you're not excited! So many...

WE’RE MOVING! After a little over a year in business, the current version of Variant Edition will be splitting off into two separate businesses, in two separate locations. This will allow both businesses to further expand on what’s already been built, creating two great, vibrant hubs for pop culture. Brandon Schatz and Danica LeBlanc will be taking Variant Edition Comics + Culture to the west end of Edmonton as of August 31st - at a location to be announced in the coming days - and Brendan Capel will remain at the shop’s current location under a name to be announced soon! What Will...

Note: This article was originally posted to Submetropolitan - a site owned by myself and Danica. At the time of publication, we didn't feel comfortable posting it to the main Variant Edition site as the company was not entirely ours, and we didn't want to speak for all parties involved. This situation has since changed, and being the sole owners of Variant Edition, we re-submit this stance as part of our vision for the store going forward. Thank you. When you’re running a comic shop that is trying to be mindful about the product being brought in and the creators being promoted, there will be times when your ideals...
