  #PickThree is Variant Edition’s comic book recommendation game, played whenever we have some moments to spare, and during (almost) every episode of Recommendation Radio. The rules are simple: you give us the name of any three books and/or tv shows and/or movies that you like, and we’ll recommend a comic series or graphic novel that we think you’ll really enjoy. Every so often, we’ll grab some of our best, and make a post about the recommendation process right here at our blog.  Keep an eye out for the request for #PickThree suggestions, and one of yours could be featured here!...

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...

Happy long weekend everyone! It’s been a while since our last full business update, so we figured we’d send out a sleepy communication through our exhausted collection of limbs and features. That’s a way normal humans communicate things, yes? Yes.

We put the word out to the community in hopes that folks would be around to help a bit with the moving process...

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...
