This weekend, June 17 – 19, is the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo! This year’s special guests include the legendary George A. Romero, Summer Glau, Felicia Day, Mike Mignola, Gail Simone, William Shatner, and more. Plus, Camilla has been nominated for a Shuster Award, one of the most prestigious recognitions in the comic book industry!
The Shuster awards are Canada’s first national comic awards, and are named after Joe Shuster, co-creator of Superman. This year, Camilla has been honored to be considered for the category of “Outstanding Comic Book Artist” for Sky Pirates of Neo Terra and Fractured Fables, which has also been nominated for an Eisner Award.
If you’re attending, come say hello! Camilla and crew will be set up at booth O08, as you can see in the map below:

At the booth, there will be several special items available for purchase, including the incredibly limited Hamburger Disco t-shirts, the Black Rabbit Kaleidoscope Fine Art Print, new cases and jewelry, and even a select number of Haut Totes, which are currently unavailable to purchase online due to overwhelming demand.
On Friday, June 17th, at 7:00pm, Camilla will be doing a special presentation called “Hobby to Professional” in the Panel Room that you won’t want to miss! The presentation follows Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, so that should give people even more reason to stay! And on Saturday night, don’t forget to see the Shuster Awards with your fingers crossed and best wishes sent out to the universe. ^_^
