A Visit to Wizard World 2012

Went to Wizard World Toronto with my daughters and a couple of their friends today. Wizard World is the first of a trio of comic-book related events that take place in Toronto every year, the other two being the Toronto Comics Art Festival (arguably my favourite as it is mostly indie publishers) which takes place in May, and Fan Expo Canada which comes in August.

Arguably the smallest of the three, Wizard World is still fun and is aimed at those fans looking to meet (and get autographs from) cult-series celebrities as well as substantial comics-related stuff, sci-fi and other genre stuff, along with a few local, independent artists looking to make a name for themselves.

Case in point: the local Dr Who Fan Club had a Dalek on hand, which the girls posed with at the show. This turns out to be Dalek Auric, who has his own fan page on Facebook.
