Ottawa Comic Con 2015 - Two Months To Go


Well, we are a few month away from the 2015 Ottawa Comic Con. I've gone the previous two years; and it's quite a blast. I don't cosplay (not that I'm against it, it's just something I don't do) but I do wear geeky t-shirts there, so that's gotta count.

There are tons of guests coming. Go to this link to see them all: http://www.ottawacomiccon.com/en/our-guests/

But you know what? Nothing against the con, but this year has the fewest people I'm looking forward to seeing their panels, as well as getting items signed. Bearing in mind that that could change - we are March, and the con is about two months away.

This leaves me with plenty of time to wander the floor and enjoy the various booths etc, as opposed to being in panels and getting items signed. I am still getting the deluxe, nor will I regret it either! Just this year i will get to enjoy a different 'side' to it.

I hope I don't lose any readers or make any enemies with this statement,, so here goes - I am not a fan of Star Wars, The Walking Dead, or Dr Who.

For the reasons I just listed above not long ago, while all the Star Wars fans are lining up, and seeing Wookie (which I' am sure they will enjoy) I will be on the floor, with hopefully less people about. Likewise goes for the girl from Dr Who.

Oh, I guess I should mention that! Who do I want to see? I'll list them, as well as 'how' I want to see the guests:

Billy Boyd ('Pippin' from The Lord of the Rings films) : panel, signature

Richard Dean Anderson ('O'Neil' from Stargate) : panel. My lovely lady is the bigger of the Stargate fans between the two of us, so I'm sure she would like his signature as well.

Liam McIntyre (Spartacus from Spartacus) : I won't be upset if I miss this one. This is a 'it depends on the schedule' type of thing. I haven't seen Spartacus yet, but I plan to...someday. If I can, I would not say 'no' to seeing his panel, nor getting a signature (depending on prices and what's up for grabs)

Nichelle Nichols : again, if possible I'd like to see her panel, but I won't be heartbroken if I miss it, nor will i make an 'effort' to make it in time. Schedule depending!

...and of course TBA!

So that's basically what I'm looking forward to / interested in. Most of my time will be spent wandering, and checking out the various booths, displays, cosplays and trades on special (please let someone have the Batman Knightfall and No Man's Land at a decent price, and the whole set...)

Should a great time - who knows, perhaps someday I'll get a spot there.
