Deathstroke, as played by Manu Bennett on ARROW
We’re proud to announce that we’ve once again partnered with Humber College’s Student Federation to present an exciting Comic Book event for the students at one of Canada’s largest colleges!
The HSF Comic Expo takes place on Wednesday October 15th at Humber Lakeshore, and Thursday October 16th at Humber North, from 11am-3pm both days.
The HSF Comic Expo is truly a one-of-a-kind event – providing students with a weekday comic-con experience for free! We will be bringing a unique mix of vendors and comic creators to help bring pop culture to the students of both of Humber’s main campuses.
