Nerds rejoice! It’s here! Well, it will be! Soon! Fan Expo Canada sets down at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Friday, August 24, opening at 4 p.m. and running until 6 p.m. on Sunday (regrettably not straight). Hosted by the sometimes questionable Hobby Star Marketing, the three-day event is home to a series of mini-expos relating to comics, science fiction, horror, anime, and gaming, and features enough guest appearances to keep the World of Warcraft player in your life erect for months. Of all the visiting celebrities, which run from the B-list right through to remedial math class, those not to be missed include the original Batman, Adam West; horror godfathers Dario Argento and George Romero; and David Prowse, the man behind the Vader suit for Star Wars episodes four through six. For ticket info and detailed schedules for each day, visit the Expo’s official website.
