Tome 1" published by "Editions
Kymera". The book collects the first five
issues and it looks really nice! Eric Bufkens did
a wonderful job translating the comics and preserving

really didn't know what to expect since this was
the inaugural year of this particular show. We
were pleasantly surprised.
arrived in Calgary on Friday (May 5th) and were

(the mastermind behind the con), Laurie, Peter
Mayhew (Chewbacca) and his wife, as well as
producer Alan Burnet (Batman Animated). It was
a fun time and we ate way too much. (Click
