A Fan Of The Fan Expo

It's always nice to take a few days to get away.

And on my three days off I travelled to many different places, or universes, if you will.

I went to a galaxy far, far away, to a land where fairy tale characters are real and to parts inhabited by zombies.

By now you have a confused look on your face. Allow me to clarify.

I spent my weekend being a total nerd at Fax Expo at the convention centre in downtown Toronto.

I got my picture taken with C3PO and R2D2 of Star Wars and a photo with the backdrop of all the characters from the tv show Once Upon A Time.

Fan Expo is a comic convention with five different sections devoted to comics, of course, anime, gaming, science fiction/fantasy and horror.

The horror area is my favourite and this year it was very evident that zombies are the new vampires.

Promos for new zombie related movies and TV shows were everywhere.

There was a big display, I'm happy to say, for Walking Dead.

It is one of my favourite shows and I'm eagerly awaiting the start of the third season in October.

There's also a new movie to be released later this year called Dead Before Dawn 3D featuring a new kind of supernatural creature called a Zemon....half zombie, half demon.

When you're into genre like me, it's so much fun to find out about new productions and products.

And it feels so comfortable for me to be interacting with other nerds who are into the same crazy stuff as me.

I'm already counting down the days to next year's Fan Expo.
