Fan Expo, is the Comicon held in Toronto Ontario Canada. It is the largest convention in the country. The creative team of Online Comic Heroes, namely my wife and myself have attended it together twice. Our last trip was in 2013. Catherine made it a very special trip for me. She purchased tickets to get a photo with Comic Legend Stan Lee, she also got us a photo with Team Knight Rider.
This four day event is just huge. Literally too big to see in a single day. In this section of the site I will be posting interesting things from the comicon and helpful tips for when you attend your next convention. Although I will be focusing on Fan Expo, the tips and articles will no doubt be applicable to any comicon you attend.
Fan Expo Canada 2015, is Canada's largest convention. The best in Comics, Sci Fi, Horror, Anime and Gaming. This year a fourth day has been added. There are some very unique additions to this years convention. The Klingon World Summit. A Harry Potter reunion and a larger focus on Star Wars events.
From the experience my wife and I have had going to the Fan Expo, I have created a small article labelled 10 Tips For A Comicon. I hope you will find them helpful.
Catherine and myself standing with David Hasselhoff and K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand).
Catherine and I both shared memories of watching Knight Rider, when we were children. K.I.T.T. was the coolest car at the time, and Catherine's first car was a Pontiac. She still has it. K.I.T.T. is a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am. If you look behind K.I.T.T. there is K.A.R.R. (Knight Automatic Roving Robot).
Catherine purchased the Photo-op tickets for us. This was an aspect of my interests Catherine could share with me. It is through Catherine's encouragement and support that got us to go to Fan Expo Canada 2013. We brought our box set of the Knight Rider series (seen held between David and myself).
This too was a gift from Catherine. David Hasselhoff thought it was great and immediately held it up for the photo.
We have this picture framed and will be displaying it with the box set in our Movie Themed Room at home (see a future blog featuring it).
We here at Online Comic Heroes would like you to share your favourite convention.
