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. Nope, in this gallery you’ll see a variety of Boba Fetts, some more X-Men, a couple of Captain Picards, a Katniss Everdeen and what has to be the tallest damn Batman I’ve ever seen. 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…)

Toronto ComiCon Day 2 Cosplay Photo Gallery

On Day 2 of Toronto ComiCon, the parade of weird and unusual continued. Bizarre team-ups and mash-ups seemed to be the rule of thumb for the day, including Star Sapphire Spider-Man, Deadmau5-pool, and a Despicable Me minion that looks a lot like Wolverine. The Batman villains kept coming, including numerous Poison Ivys and Harley Quinns, but for the safety of all fans, LEGO Batman was on the scene to keep the peace. And if he failed there was always Spawn. Or Radioactive Man. Or Master Shake. Also, zombies finally put in an appearance, as did #PoorLeo, and what has to be the first cosplayers from Steven Spielberg’s Hook I’ve ever encountered… Want to take a look at all the cosplay fit to be enshrined from the second of the con? Check out our photo gallery below. (more…)

In the Toronto area today it was the start of March Break, the Canadian equivalent of spring break, but pre-spring. Today was also the start of Toronto ComiCon, the younger cousin of August’s National Fan Expo and the unofficial kick-off to the Canadian convention season. From as far away as Windsor, London, Kingston and Ottawa, Canadian nerds of all stripes – comics, gaming, sci-fi, anime, and horror – have descended on the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for three days of festivities, including, obviously, the parade of cosplayers on the convention floor. Below, is a gallery of some of the costume all-stars who came out on day 1 and showed off their skill with a needle and thread. (more…)

MUST WATCH WEB SERIES: ‘Sweethearts of the Galaxy’

Admittedly, I hate it when people approach me to check out their online web series. I’m a total curmudgeon about it. Yes, there are tons of really good series out there, but the vast majority are almost always bad. It’s painful having to give up minutes of my life on the chance something might be good. All too often I’m pained with dodgy production value, poor effects and cringe worthy acting. On rare occasion, though, I’ll come across a web series that wins my attention. Sweethearts of the Galaxy is one of those select few. (more…)
