Montreal Comiccon 2015

I know most of you are probably recovering from SDCC mania right now, whether you were there in San Diego in person or had to just live vicariously through your social media accounts like me, so I decided to share my recent trip to Montreal’s own Comiccon to help you with your SDCC withdrawal.

EMP Museum Fall 2014

EMP Museum Fall 2014

As I mentioned back in my PAX Prime 2014 recap, I took an extra day in Seattle after the con had wrapped up to check out the EMP Museum‘s Science Fiction exhibit. And, unbeknownst to me at the time, the EMP museum was also hosting exhibitions on Fantasy and Horror, two of my other favourite genres.
