The Montreal Comic Con has now come and gone and it’s safe to say it was a huge success. A small, intimate convention pulling around 2500 attendees, it was an absolute blast featuring some of the most awesome artists (Darwyn Cooke, Mike Allred, Karl Kershl and Herb Trimpe just to name a few), stellar guests (both the Hulk and Lou Ferrigno were in attendance), cool companies (Eidos showed off Arkham Asylum and brought giveaways) and more. With next year shaping up to be even bigger, we at CmdStore.com can’t wait to attend!
And until then, I’ll be looking forward to taking part in our upcoming show, the Montreal ToyCon. Featuring a ton of retailers selling the best of the best figures and collectibles, awesome LEGO and art showcases, plus appearances by the 501st Legion and dozens of other cosplayers, it’s definitely worth the trip down.
The Montreal ToyCon takes place October 18th, 2009 at the Courtyard by Marriott, from 10am to 5pm. Tickets are only $4, with kids 5 and under getting in free.
