It's a Bird, It's a Plane, No, It's Comiccon!


Comiccon is taking Ottawa by storm May 10-12, 2013 at the Ernst and Young Center and library staff will be there to celebrate! There is something for everyone at this 3 day event! You may want to get an autograph and your picture taken with your favourite stars, hear a panel discussion, check out the game zone or enjoy a musical performance from James Marsters. For the shopaholic, there are comics, t-shirts, action figures, memorabilia and more. The day can be expensive if you want to do everything offered, but this blogger will be entertained enough window shopping and admiring the colourful costumes in the masquerade. For some inspiration, take a peek at the event website.

Don’t forget to check out the library booth to enter for a prize draw and to see how the library’s collection can help you find your inner superhero!
