I heard some awesome news this morning on the way to work. Pretty much all the local papers here highlighted an article announcing that Ottawa is to have its very first ComicCon mid-May of this year!
It's to be held May 12-13th at the CE Center (it's a new convention centre put up near the Ottawa International Airport), and is right in my neck of the woods, so I won't have to venture too far out to get there.
The roster of special guests include Sir Patrick Stewart and John De Lancie of TNG fame, Lou Ferrigno from the original "Incredible Hulk" TV show, and Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. The Delorean Time Machine from BTTF will even be there!
I know there really aren't that many Canadian members here, and even fewer who are anywhere near Ottawa, but I just wanted to share the news. I'm totally geeking out here, guys
