The mini-Comiccon is hosted by the Montreal Comiccon. This is a small-scale event where visitors can meet a dozen of local artists, participate in a masquerade and a costume contest, as well as buy products from a large array of dealers – comic books, manga, collectibles, movies, video games, toys, and much more!
Tickets will only be sold at the door (room 200-N). Free for children under 10.
I headed down to the Montreal Comic Con yesterday and not only had a great time, but was able to snag a few Christmas deals for my geek-leaning friends. Not to mention seeing a number of great comic artists, taking in a great costume contest and meeting the occasional geek-celeb!
There were a ton of hugely talented artists present, including Tom Fowler, Marcus To and Francis Manapul, and they were selling prints and originals, plus doing the usual Con sketches for their adoring fans!
And though Iron Sheik was forced to cancel, Spike Spencer (voice actor best known for his work in Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Sam Witwer (Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, Dexter and Star Wars Unleashed) were there to make sure that the fanboys and fangirls still had plenty to get excited over.
Finally, the vendors were out in full force, there were Pokemon, Magic and Naruto tournaments and demos, plus some NCW Superhero wrestling and Star Wars replicas of a Landspeeder and, of course, fan-favourite droid R2-D2!
Now, with 2010 almost behind us, I can only look forward to next September and the 2-day Con extraordinaire that the 2011 MCC will bring!
