Live Blog: 2010 Toronto ComiCon

8:00 a.m. – OK. So maybe my first real attempt at live blogging did not go as well as I had wanted. Let’s try again today with Hobbystar’s 2010 Toronto ComiCon.

8:02 a.m. – The Canada/USA Olympic gold medal hockey game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. this afternoon. It will be interesting to see how this event will affect attendance in the afternoon. According to some reports almost 70% of Canada tuned to watch the Russia/Canada quarterfinal game.

10:57 a.m. – Bigger than expected line up

11:15 a.m. – just had a conversation with Francis Manapul. Still in shock. In a good way. (edit. And no I won’t tell you.  Follow his blog for updates.)

12:03 p.m. – busy

12:10 p.m. – Guy Davis

12:40 – Heroes of the World being politically correct. Both versions of the Iranian flag

12:52 p.m. – Marcus To, Nancy Zajac and Agnes Garbowska

1:05 p.m. – Brother Man! (edit. Found this book while digging through some magazines.  Thought it might have been one of those B&W books from the mid-80’s.  But a quick Google search later…)

1:30 p.m. – Cameron Stewart and Ray Fawkes

2:06 p.m. – cosplay and hockey … Can a comic con get more Canadian than that?

2:56 p.m. – leaving the show and heading over a bar to see the gold medal game. Surprisingly, there are still a lot of people here.
