Comic Con Toronto hit up the Direct Energy Centre this weekend, which witnessed comic book fans come out in droves to meet well-known artists, dress up as their favourite character, mingle with a celebrity or two, and of course look through the vast selection of comics on sale.

Aside from the comics and graphic novels, there were also lots of toys and accessories on sale to help enrich your own personal heroic exploits, such as Elf ears and weaponry. A few vehicles were on hand as well, the most notable being the Halo car, which really wouldn't look out of place fighting for a parking spot on Queen Street West.

Several booths promoting various Toronto communities like the Steampunk Society and Epoch showed that the social side of fandom is thriving locally.

Jedi with light sabers rubbed shoulders with imperial stormtroopers; Ghostbusters and robots eyed each other warily; Roller Grrls glided amongst the crowd and everyone's inner geek was well satisfied by the end.
