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...

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...
