Report on: FanExpo 2013

FanExpo is a predominant vertex of the Canadian convention scene, drawing thousands upon thousands to what’s roughly the scene’s big end to the summer. FanExpo is the size all conventions aspire to be, and while the organizers do not have a perfect record, it’s still a must-go for any GTA comic fan who can’t afford San Diego. 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.
