Attention dorks: We know you're probably already planning to hit up the Wizard World Toronto Comic Con in April, but how would you like to attend the con for free? Dork Shelf would like to send ten lucky winners to Wizard World Toronto Comic Con April 14 - 15 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
