Adam West. Billy Dee Williams. Charisma Carpenter. These are just a few of the special guests you’ll find later this month at Edmonton’s premier pop culture show, the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo. This new event grew out of a partnership between the Edmonton Toy & Comic Show and the Calgary Expo:
Whether you’re a connoisseur of sci-fi, horror, gaming, fantasy, animation, toys, and comic books, or you simply have a keen interest in pop culture, then this is the show for you. The Edmonton Expo will feature vendors, exhibitors, celebrities, and artists, from every nook and cranny of the pop culture universe, not to mention the many hours of fantastic programming included with admission.
The event takes place on October 20 and 21 at, appropriately, the Edmonton Expo Centre. Check out the detailed schedule here. You can see the event on ShareEdmonton here.
Ticket prices range from $15 for a single day to $150 for a VIP pass and are on sale now at Ticketmaster. I was fortunate enough to be contacted by the show’s PR folks recently with some tickets to give away! Here’s what is up for grabs:
A family pack of Edmonton Expo tickets (2 Adult tickets and 2 Children ages 10 and under) and priority seating at the Whedonverse Panel, where Sean Maher and Charisma Carpenter will lead a discussion on what it has been like working within the Whedonverse and the benefits their careers have had working beside legendary writer, producer, and director Joss Whedon.
To enter the contest, simply leave a comment below identifying an “Edmonton superhero”. It can be a real person or a character you make up!
Entries will be accepted until 11:59pm on October 17, 2012. I will contact the randomly chosen winner by e-mail by October 18, 2012.

Obviously thought of you and Sharon (for What the Truck?!), and Jen Banks (Make Jen’s Day)
Debbie Hubbard for tireless volunteer work on GEA & Urban Ag. Advisory Committee
Wayne Gretzky comes to mind immeditely
I’m not just saying this to win the tickets, but Mack, I really do think you are an “Edmonton superhero!” You love Edmonton and Edmonton loves you! You are always trying to make Edmonton a better place to live- from creating pop-up events to just writing about Edmonton! And that’s a superhero, to me! 🙂
This dude: Darrell Krushelnicki. He used his hummer as a shield for 4 little kids vs. a distracted driver at a crosswalk. He’s from BC, but I would call him an honorary Edmontonian. HUM-V-BOY.
Let’s go with Gretzky. Or anyone who runs a comic book store.
A Volunteer… someone who takes time out of their own life to help those in need that would b a Edmonton super hero…
Robert (Bob) Stollery – Hard to think of anyone else who has contributed more to this City proffesionaly and personally.
Robert (Bob) Stollery
Dancing Dan! This hero brings a smile to everyones face who notices him dancing on corners.
Mystro M. A superhero that uses his incredible brain powers to stream knowledge to the less informed.
I would have to say the Edmonton RCMP. The diligence and hard work of our men and women in the force keep the city streets safe for small-town girls like me!
The hummer driver for saving 4 children. Amazing story.
Can Man Dan, for his tireless triumph over poverty, hopelessness, and hunger for those who can’t always fend for themselves.
In the spirit of the Edmonton Comic Expo, my Edmonton superhero is Nathan Fillion. From portraying Caption Hammer in Dr. Horrible to voicing the animated Green Lantern, this Edmonton native gets my vote.
I would say an Edmonton Hero are the people who work on the front lines and put their safety at risk everyday to keep the city safe.
There many Super Heroes here in our city of champions. Today, my vote goes to the lovely couple who obviously give up their free time to pick up the litter around the Southgate LRT pedway left by those who don’t have the courage to find a garbage can.
I’m late on this, so you know it has nothing to do with the context. But seriously, Mack. You are everywhere, covering everything and boosting Edmonton every way you can. You even have a superhero handle – MasterMaq. Come one, who are you fooling? We know who the superhero is around town 🙂
