The dust has settled on Fan Expo 2018, our home show, and a successful weekend. A giant thank you to all who stopped by our RAID section in Artist Alley. A plethora of people visited our panels, cheered us un during our live draw event with Showcase TV, supported our artists and pre-ordered our RAID TWO anthology - we couldn't ask for better fans! The Expo is an overwhelming event that takes over the lives of everyone in the studio and is always an exciting time. We'll share more about the show in the weeks to come, but for now it's time to take a moment to relax and raise a glass to our fans, the studio, and the great community around us. 


RAID TWO and our RAID TWO: SKETCH EDITION are now both available for pre-order in our online store and they're moving fast! The Sketch Edition is limited to only a 100 copies and the first dozen have already disappeared at Fan Expo!

Set to debut this fall, and ship out in November, our oversized omnibus of an anthology clocking in at 160 full colour pages is jam-packed with some great stories and amazing art by our RAID family! Featuring content by Mike Valiquette, Kalman Andrasofszky, Taran Chadha, Willow Dawson, Irma Kniivila, Tri Vuong, Ramón Pérez, Kyle J Smith, Gabe Sapienza, Tonci Zonjic, Eric Vedder, Sheldon Carter, Anthony Falcone, Gibson Quarter, Ian Herring, Dan MacIntyre, Cameron Stewart, the infamous  Joverine, and special guest Rhymewithrachel!


We had a wonderful time welcoming Huffington Post Canada into our new RAID HQ and chatting about the diversity of characters in comics. With RAID itself being a collective of creators from diverse cultural backgrounds this is something very important to us. TAKE A WATCH.
