Two Montreal Cons in the Month of May

Coming up on Sunday, May 9th 2010, check out the next Montreal Comic Con!

It goes down at Place Bonaventure (800 De La Gauchetiere, West) and you can get tickets at the door. THis time around, the convention is smaller and more intimate, dealing primarily with local creators and exhibitors showing off their wares. You can also expect a costume contest (featuring $500 worth of prizes!), so be sure to strap on those superhero duds (or anything from anime, to fantasy to original designs!) and step out before the judges.

Though scaled-down, you can still expect to see some pretty fierce talent at the convention and leading the charge is famed Marvel writer Chris Claremont, whose style and massive body of work have made him one of the biggest names in the biz.

Tickets are $5, but children under 6 and any Moms accompanied by at least one child get in for FREE. The show runs from 11am to 5pm and you can check out their website here for more info.

Next up, on May 16th, be sure to make your way over to the Montreal ToyCon!

If you’re into action figures, collectibles or gaming, this is definitely the con for you. Open from 10am to 5pm and taking place at the Courtyard by Marriott in St. Laurent, ToyCon boasts a huge assortment of toys and vendors, plus a strong showing from some of Montreal’s coolest clubs, including QueLug and the Canadian Garrison of the 501st Legion (look out, Star Wars fans!).

Admission is $4 and children 5 and under get in for free.

So if you’re looking for that one hard-to-find toy, great bargains on some of the best items our there or just a fun way to spend your Sunday, make your way down to the Courtyard and stop on by!
