Toronto Fan Expo 2010!

This post is a little late but I just wanted to do a little recap on The Toronto Fan Expo and the debut of SOLSTICE.  From the attendees perspective to say that the show had it’s ups and downs would be an understatement.  This years show was again plagued with the overselling of tickets coupled with angry fans who had to wait in line for hours just to be able to walk through the front doors or not even being able to walk through the front doors at all.  It was a great disaster.  Great in the sense that Fan Expo is becoming so huge that the Metro Toronto Convention Centres North Building space of 193,000 sf, wasn’t enough to accommodate the amount of people who showed up.  Next years show will be in the South Building which has a floor space of 260,000 sf.  That is why The Toronto Fan Expo is the third largest convention in North America next to San Diego and New York.  So to say that the release of Solstice went well would be an understatement when being debuted in venue like that.  Thank you to all of the fans, new and old, who came out looking forward to picking up a copy of the new title and a very special thanks goes out to Kurt Sasso from TGT Webcomics for doing an interview with me and spreading the word that Lamin Illustration & Design is out there. 
Take a look at his site and the interview HERE.

  1. Hey Lamin, as one of the folks who spent all her time in lineups and never made it inside, have to say even THAT was fun - just seeing everyone's costumes, the energy they put in to planning, being there - was worth it. Hopefully better planning on my part (and the change of venue) will mean getting in next year! See you there! A
