Comic Expo 2017 – North POSTPONED

Due to the faculty strike, unfortunately IGNITE has been forced to postpone this event. We will announce a new date for Comic Expo once it has been confirmed.

Tuesday, Oct. 17 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM

North Campus – Student Centre

Get ready to geek out over all your favourite comic and TV characters at IGNITE’s 5th annual Comic Expo!

Join us on Tuesday, October 17th at the North Campus Student Centre and get in on the fun! Indulge in hours of TV, movie, and comic exploration. Visit our comic illustrators, check out our vendors, and much more.

This year we’ve also got a very special guest in attendance for all the Game of Thrones fans out there (so, that’s pretty much everyone right?) Esme Bianco – best-known for playing the outspoken Ros on Game of Thrones – will be joining us for a Meet & Greet. An English actress and model, Bianco has a list of credits that also include TV Series The Magicians and Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
