What are the monthly meetings all about? Well, they take place on the first Thursday of every month at Happy Harbor Comics from 7:00pm to 9:00pm and we have a variety of different topics and activities such as screenings, table top games, books, comics, movies, television, video games, costumes, and more.
Since April of 2014 LGN has had dozens of meetings. It all started with a pretty simple round table meeting and we discussed, “what got you into comics and which ones are your favourites?” from there we had a screening of Red Sand, the Mass Effect fan film, and Mark Meer showed up and did a Q&A with us! After that we played board games, had a cosplay panel, raised money for the Greater Edmonton and Area Animal Rescue Society (GEARS) with nerdy silent auction items, and then our first holiday craft market.
In 2015 we kept popular meetings with screenings, gaming, and creator guests and tried a few new things like a couple of book club meetings with different themes, panels on fan fiction and role playing games, and we had a few splinter events take place at a new comic shop: Variant Edition.
So far the organizing team has planned all the way to July of 2016 and there is a lot to look forward to. We welcome constructive feedback on our events and are always open to suggestions. So, please join us on a Thursday evening and geek out! To find out what’s coming up next be sure to join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, and check out the Blog.
