March 31, 2016
4:00pm to 7:00pm
It's no secret that Edmonton is a hotbed of phenomenal comic creators and independent projects, like the Saga of the Jack of Spades!
The Saga began some time back when writer, Chase Kantor and artist, Daniel Schneider joined forces with letterer, Sylvia Moon, and colourist Sabrina O'Donnell, to produce a stellar new independent series and then launched a successful indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the project.
Now, the first installment in this Edmonton-based comic about the story behind the deck of cards is finally hitting the shelves! You're invited to Happy Harbor to celebrate this momentous occasion, meet the creators, and get your personally signed copy of the debut issue.
THE SAGA OF THE JACK OF SPADES #1
The land, once unified under a single banner, has been divided into four territories, each territory ruled by a family. The Diamonds, wealthy and corrupt; the Clubs, strong and resourceful; the Hearts, ambitious, though loyal to a fault; and the Spades, hard and merciless, and all of whom desire power above all things. Centuries of bloodshed have won a tenuous peace between the families. To prevent another war, the Four of a Kind, an order of wise and holy men, have been entrusted to keep the peace at any cost. Each King is watched closely by a member of this conclave, though, like all things, corruption has, too, spread through their ranks. The land, yet again, finds itself poised on the edge of a sword.
