What’s happening with Wizard’s Winnipeg convention?

by  in Comic News Comment

A concerned fan alerted us via email that Wizard World has removed the convention formerly known as the Central Canada Comic Con, or C4, in Winnipeg from their convention listings page; trying to hit the Winnipeg page on their site gives you a 404 error.

While there don’t appear to be any details on why the listing was removed, posts on the show’s Facebook group indicate the show will go on. Michael Paille of Raven Toys, Comics & Games posted a message asking for help to keep the show going, noting “I guarantee you Winnipeg will have a comic con this year!” In another post, he indicated he has booked the convention center.

Wizard acquired the convention last November, and according to the press release that went out at the time, it is (was?) scheduled for Oct. 28-30.

I’ve reached out to both Wizard World and Paille for additional comment, and will post any updates I receive.

Update: Paille has posted an update on the Raven Comics blog, noting that Wizard is out, but the con will continue. And he’s looking for help with various fundraising activities, so if interested, head over there to check them out.
