Met some new G.I.joe collectors last Sunday. Lots of fun was had as just over 1300 people attended the toy show.

Now back to C4 news, :), the early guest list is going to start rolling out over the next few weeks. Thus far joining Ray Park we have artists Tommy Castillo, Marc Wolfe and Dave McCaig!

Stayed tuned as there is lots more to come including the announcement of an artist with a history of work on G.I.Joe!

General Information about Central Canada Comic Con
- Fastest growing event in Canada! In 2006, the convention received 3000 attendees, 11,000 in 2007 and a whopping 16,500 in 2008! In 2009 the Central Canada Comic Con reached an attendance of 18,000! In 2010, we are expecting an attendance of 20,000!
- Our Advertising Campaign is one of the most expansive for an event of our calibre. We send posters and handbills out to every store in Canada, and to stores in the US that reach our catchment area. (Our Catchment is anywhere within a 15hr drive of Winnipeg, MB.) In addition to this we run newspaper, radio, magazine, and digital display ads around Winnipeg.
- C4 is an all ages family event! This year we are supporting our Local School Libraries to help them raise funds to buy more graphic novels and books for kids to read. Posters and handbills go to the schools so all the students know about our event!
- Our event also has great exposure on the internet. Currently if a person searches for “comic con” via Google, we will show up first on the 2nd page! With all the conventions out there, we have the top spot! Go ahead, test it out, and try searching for Sci-Fi Expo!
- Our theme for 2010 is Halloween! We’re looking forward to a wonderful year with a lot of top notch artists and guests that will surely please the fans.
