Montreal Comic Con: A Spotlight on Local Talent May 9th!

The Montreal Comic Con is definitely a small convention, but it tends to draw big talent and this Sunday, May 9th, should be no exception!

The Guest of Honour is Chris Claremont: Writer Chris Claremont has encountered more success than most writers ever dream of. His stories have achieved best-seller status, won numerous awards, and are trend-setters for the industry. Although best known for his work on Marvel Comic’s X-Men series, he has written other seminal characters such as Batman and Superman; originated several creator-owned series; is published throughout the world in many different languages; authored nine novels; and even had his first video game premier in Spring 2006. His work has touched millions.

Beyond that, this bite-sized, one day convention will be putting the focus on local talent! You can expect something bigger this summer, but it’s always great to see and support the local creators and Montreal is definitely a great place to do that, boasting a surprisingly large number of great artists doing some really impressive, sometimes world-renowned work.
