Edmonton blog roundup: Oct. 5, 2015

Spider-Mable T-shirt
Illustrator Jason Blower has designed a T-shirt in honour of Spider-Mable to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation.

This was the week that Edmonton went out to play with Spider-Mable, so let’s start there.

If you missed the phenomenon, or just want to relive it, Wanye Gretz has a passionate recap.

Sonic’s Layne Mitchell has more on Jason Blower’s T-shirt project to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation, which made Mable’s epic superhero day possible.

And speaking of Jason, learn more about what makes him a big dreamer in Tineke de Jong’s post on The Noteworthy.

It looks like the shirt has enough preorders to be made, so way to go, Jason! Order your T-shirt here.
