Taking place this weekend between March 17-19, 2023 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Comicon once again is back drawing big crowds in a celebration of Fandom! Taking place in the Cente’s North Building, fans came out in a year that saw even more focus on family activities at the event which coincides with March Break.
New this year were events like Poké-Sunday, a full day dedicated to the love of Pokémon; the Great Toronto Comicon Baby Race, pitting youngsters on the cosplay red carpet in a race for speed; The Mandalorian star Emily Swallow hosting a Celeb Karaoke Party. There was even a Toronto Comicon Lightsaber Battle! An unapologetic geek-out.
In addition to giving fans a chance to meet their favourite Artists in the Artist Alley, getting a chance to obtain rare commissions, and a chance to buy cool memorabilia from vendors, Toronto Comicon is about starpower. Attending the festivities this year were the likes of Andy Serkis, Scott Patterson, Sean Gunn, Robbie Amell, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell and several more.
One of the hottest tickets at Toronto Comicon this year was the Panel by the Cast of Prime Video‘s THE BOYS – the streaming service’s #1 show. Our George Kozera was lucky enough to attend and gives us the scoop!
“The exuberance from THE BOYS Cast (Jack Quaid, Claudia Doumit, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso) during the panel interview was infectious. Whether it was their favourite places to eat in Toronto while shooting the wildly-popular Series, with shout-outs to North of Brooklyn for pizza, Burger Drops in Liberty Village and Otto’s Berlin Doner in Kensington Market to name a few, Fukuhara’s lament was the inability to buy Mott’s Clamato in the U.S.. They gave away no secrets about the upcoming season four of this Emmy Award television show. We even heard Quaid reminding himself out loud before hopping on-stage, to not reveal anything about Season Four! He did however, admit that one scene was so particularly gruesome that he had to turn his head away while watching. That should get everyone’s motor running at full speed!”.
