Jay and Silent Bob are back!
Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are hitting the road with their new animated film, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, which blazes across North America in a series of one-night-only shows which started in April of this year. The legendary best buds from Jersey are back to dispense weed and wisdom in cartoon form and audiences will have the opportunity to watch the new movie AND stick around for a rip-roaring Q&A afterwards. This will be a special event at the Montreal Comiccon at the Palais des Congrès on Saturday, September 14 at 8:00 p.m. Check out the Montreal ComicCon website for more details and tickets.
There were some celebrity cancelations and changes but the line-up still looks great. Lots of things to see and do at the show. We have 5 booths packed with our toy inventory (and our Ottawa store has 3 booths). Oscar and Alex have done a fantastic job and this will be a awesome show. Hope to see you all there this weekend.
We were gone almost a week working at the Fan Expo 2013 in Toronto. It was a great fun show. Here are some pics for you guys…..
Do you like Japanese Anime/Manga? We will be at Otakuthon this weekend and we hope to see you there.
What is Otakuthon? Otakuthon is Quebec’s largest anime convention promoting Japanese animation (anime), Japanese graphic novels (manga), related gaming and Japanese pop-culture. There will be anime-related programming, costume parties, contests, dealer room and tons of other things to do.

It is that time of the year again. We have 4 booths at this year’s Montreal Anime and Manga convention held at the Palais des Congres (Convention center located in Montreal’s Chinatown). I love doing shows at this convention hall because I get to eat lots of chinese food. Ok, the food is not as good as NYC or Toronto…but I still get to eat some duck or BBQ/roast pork. I start off with a few curry buns and then get a good meaty lunch of porky goodness. At night, I get some steamed oysters with black beans and ginger along with some good stir fry. Enough food talk, see you at the show.
