The Vancouver Mega Comic-Con brings together fans and purveyors of comic, gaming, and geek lifestyle goods, filling convention-floor booths with such companies as Arcana Studio and Topps Card Comics and artists such as Natasha Baron and Randy Emberlin. Snap a picture with four celebrity guests, who will be on hand both days to greet their adoring public. Attendees can grill Dustin Diamond about his days as Screech on Saved by the Bell, ask Clare Kramer if she still has her fangs from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or approach WWE and WCW star Honky Tonk Man for an autograph and complimentary choke-slam. Collectible-card-game tournaments run both days for popular games such as Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh!
The show stage is booked solid with presentations throughout both days, from animation workshops to interviews with celebrity guests and industry experts. On Saturday, 10 lucky FX artists will be selected to square off in the Creature Feature Makeup FX competition. During the contest, they’ll create their own horrific character over four hours in hopes of snagging a cash prize or a handful of candy corn from last Halloween. On Sunday, ECCW Wrestling will stage a all-fan-powered wrestling show, and participants are invited to attend in costume.
