This year’s FanExpo took place August 22nd to 25th at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. Like always, it was one incredible weekend where Geek is Good.

Alice’s ‘Been Reading’ – April & May 2013

I’ve decided to create this new segment on TdotComics – ‘Been Reading’ – to collect all my instagram ‘Currently Reading’ posts and to do a short paragraph on each book now that I’ve finished them and had some time to think.
