Vancouver Fan Expo 2012

The last time I went to a large scale comic convention in Vancouver was in 1999. The highlights included an appearance by Comic artist JIM LEE and AL Simmons of SPAWN fame.
It was called Pacific Comicon & the place was small & hot.

Fast forward 13 years & the city has come in to it's own after hosting the 2009 winter Olympics,Stanly cup playoffs and other successful events. It was just a matter of time before another convention returned to the city.

Enter The Fan Expo! It's been around for some time, but until now has been on the east coast of Canada. This is it's first time ever in Vancouver B.C. and I must say it was a huge Success!

Highlights included appearances by Adam West & Burt Ward,Kevin Sorbo,Michael Dorn and Lou Ferrigno
