Hello and welcome to the seventh annual Edmonton Comics & Entertainment Expo, Edmonton’s largest convention of its kind! It’s always great to round out the summer months (if you can call it that this time around) with this event as there is always something for everyone here. This year’s event also featured special guests such as George Takei, Sean Astin, Veronica Taylor, and Wallace Shawn, just to name a few.
