ComicCon is coming to Victoria in 2018

It'd be cool if they could get some Riverdale cast over.

I think this would be a blast to go and be a spectator.  Too bad I am away during this.

From what I understand it is some type of collaboration between the DVBA, Tourism Victoria and Cherry Bomb Toys.

Oh yeah the people watching is amazing at these events. I’ve been once and it was great (and I’m not into that genre in the least).

This post is to help get the reply count up so that others will check this tread out.

I threw out all my 3D Superman comics in 1953 because I lost the glasses.

I know there has been a lot of work put into this already. Our LEGO club is going to be involved and providing a huge display possibly with some out-of-town help.

PatrIck Warburton is coming. Now that’s a decent name. Puddy from Seinfeld. Or more recently the rental car commercials.

Not feeling much excitement for this around town.  And Warburton remains the biggest name.

Conventions like this can be huge disasters,  for every successful recurring convention there's a bunch of failed ones.  Even some of the successful ones are undone by internal drama and politics.  Was just reading a talk about the subject,  some really weird stuff often goes on socially in these groups.

Deanna Troi is going to be there, and Jake the Snake!

Not going this year, but we did one day last year and it was very well run, lots of fun!
