Hello everyone, and welcome to another great week of pop culture and fun here at Variant Edition. Last week was pretty busy, with the official launch of our used book section, as well as hosting the latest Edmonton Podcasting Meet-Up, and this week will be just as busy, as we are holding the launch of E.C. Bell's latest book in store at 7pm on Tuesday, October 25th - and then this weekend, we'll be handing out FREE COMICS to everyone who stops by the store this Saturday. All that, plus the usual madness that happens in store. But before we get to all of that, let's take a look at the...

Good morning folks! A quick introduction today, as there's so much happening! This past week, we held our first ever Introverts Reading Night, had a creator signing featuring future industry star Curt Pires, and teamed up with Zoe's Animal Rescue for our first Dogs and Comics Event. While we were there, we started putting the pieces together for our next cat event, and started some more painting projects, as the store gets ready for the official launch of our used prose books section on this Saturday...

Greetings everyone! We hope that your Thanksgiving weekend is going well, and that family hasn’t stressed you out too much. Or that the Presidential debates didn’t boil your brain. (Or hey, maybe you skipped all of it and watched some wrestles instead? WWE’s Smackdown brand usually puts on a good show.) Anyway, this week is a monster, as we’ve finally got a massive restock in after our big move. It’s… robust, to say the least, and this post was clocking in at over 1800 words before we wrote the introduction. Basically? Lots of stuff. So much stuff, there was no time...

Good morning everyone, and welcome to October. As we are writing this (in advance!) it’s a rainy day and the leaves are falling all around us. There’s a lot of trees around our new location, so we regularly have to sweep out leaves that blow in which is… oddly nice. Our new digs definitely feel more warm and cozy, and being so close to tree-lined residential streets definitely adds to that feel. But anyway. It’s another huge week of comics, with a lot of starts, and a lot of really strange crossover ideas. Seriously, you’re going to see The Army of...

It's a new era here at Variant Edition Comics + Culture, and fall will soon be upon us. We've got a lot happening this week, as we continue to settle into our new space (10132 - 151 Street!) and prepare for this week's great big Community Clothing Swap. We're also still waiting on Telus to stop by and hook up our internet, as well as Diamond to deliver the point of sale system we ordered over a month ago, but hey, what's a big move without a couple of hiccups that are beyond your control? Anyway, in addition to all of the post-move clean up, we're...

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...
