I was planning on going all year, but now I have to move and work this weekend. I want to go, just to find artists who might be interested in working on the Canadian Legion stuff.

The panels are weak this time around.

Great guest list. It's a shame when I went to their first con a year or so ago in november it was such a complete dud. It was held in the equivalent of an unheated warehouse and the trip ended up costing a ton of money.

Maybe I'll give them a shot again but it'll have to take a few more years until I forget how bad a time that trip was lol!

I wish I could go too, but I am stuck out on the east coast with no travelling cash...I've never been to a con, which kind of sucks, I'd like to check it out.

Very few creators from outside Montreal come to its shows. The shows themselves are really small, but if you're an aspiring artist living in the area I'd recommend going just to talk with the local creators:

- Yanick Paquette
- Clement Sauve
- Wes Craig
- Serge LaPointe
- Eric Theriault

These guys are really nice to talk to and very talented as well.

I probably won't make it to the comicon but i'll be at the Hobby Start Toronto Annual Comics/Anime/Horror/Games convention at the end of August this year.

2007 Toronto Hobby Star Convention

Apparently they had over 40 000 people last year (i was there last year too) and great guests. For anyone interested in comics, and even remotely interested in games (video games, etc.), horror or anime it's the show to go. There's a huge space and lots of retailers, heck you can even purchase swords there.

There's lots of hotels downtown usually, so if you go to Toronto it'd be easy to find a hotel downtown and even near the comic cons.

I've just got back from NY after sharing a booth with the names you mention, apart from Eric and am going to start looking into getting to Toronto for the con. I think it's either that or Heroes con for me this year as far as another overseas con.

Kris.

I would have gone if my big sister wasn't getting married in Vancouver that same weekend. I don't even like weddings but the family is making me go.
