Earlier today, Wizard World announced that the 2012 Toronto Comic Con would be moving to a new venue: the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in the heart of downtown Toronto. It’s welcome news for those of us who did not enjoy that chilly Spring trek out to the Direct Energy Centre.
Confirmed guests include Paul McGillion (Stargate: Atlantis, Star Trek), Eisner Award Hall of Fame writer Marv Wolfman (DCU Online, Crisis on Infinite Earths), and artists Mike Deodato Jr. (Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Woman), John McCrea (“Hitman, Transmetropolitan) and Barry Kitson (Uncanny X-Force, FF”). More guest announcements are sure to be made over the coming months.
“Wizard World Toronto Comic Con has grown tremendously in its first two years, making this move to the Metro Toronto Convention Center a natural,” said John Macaluso of the Wizard World Board of Directors. A larger venue with the more convenient and accessible location? This move sounds like a win-win for both Wizard World and Canadian convention goers. Dork Shelf will be there with bells on. And no, that doesn’t mean we’re dressing up like Khal Drogo.
The 2012 Wizard World Toronto Comic Con is set to take place April 14-15 at the MTCC. More information here.
