To wrap up the cosplay parade from Toronto ComiCon this weekend, we’re kicking it old school. Not quite as old school as the original Norse mythology version of Thor, but he was at the con too.

The Doctor shows himself again, we found another Catwoman, and we said “Howdy” to cowboy Deadpool. Even Loki stopped and let us take a picture. All that and more in our third and final photo gallery from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Toronto ComiCon weekend. (more…)

More than the standard Q&A with a celebrity guest, Esposito sometimes wandered into the realm of the motivational talk as he discussed memories from the set, and lessons learned for the everyday.

It was exactly one year ago that a little TV show called Orphan Black came to Toronto ComiCon for some pre-release buzz; the panel took place in a small room and maybe a couple of dozen curious fans came in. Fast-forward a year and there are enough Orphan Black fans to fill one of the biggest panel rooms, and then some. This was the scene for series’ stars Tatiana Maslany and Jordan Gavaris on Saturday afternoon.
