Dammit Jim! Star Trek is Fifty!


“Live long and prosper.” That was Spock’s  Star Trek catchphrase, words immortalized in Leonard Nimoy’s deadpan delivery, matter-of-fact, with hidden layers of emotion. And boy, if anything has lived long and prospered, it’s the Star Trek franchise. Six TV series with a seventh on the way, and thirteen films. It’s hard to believe it all started way back on this day in 1966, fifty years ago. Read the rest of this entry

BBP! Fan Expo Canada: Day 4 Guide (Sunday)

Fan Expo CanadaToday is the last day of the 2016 version of Fan Expo Canada. Hopefully your body has held up because there’s still a lot to do today.

With it being a long weekend, many have set aside this day to bring their kids. And of course, the cos-players are still out in full effect at the convention, and those that thought they had enough yesterday are coming back today because they’ve realized that do want that one last thing, after all.

That makes Sunday, the fourth day, a pretty busy day inside the hallways and room of the Metropolitan Convention Centre.

Me? I’ve done my scouting over the last few days. And now I’m looking to hit some of the vintage vendors for some old time comics and graphic novels. Things that tickle my fancy, things to add to my collection.

So, from 10 AM to 5 PM today, here’s what Biff Bam Pop! thinks you should be checking out on Fan Expo Canada Day 4:

BBP! Fan Expo Canada: Day 2 Guide (Friday)

Fan Expo CanadaLike an appetizer at a grand feast, yesterday was tasty – but a taste was all it was!

How are your feet? Wearing comfortable shoes? Good. How’s your back? Is the strap on your pack strong enough to carry a heavy load of books, toys and other weighty paraphernalia? Excellent. You’re very nearly prepped.

Today begins Day 2 of Fan Expo Canada – and it’s the first of the two longest days of the pop culture convention operation, starting at 10:00 AM and running until 7:00 PM.

If you didn’t get a chance to make a run to those exclusives tables, make sure you do it first thing this morning – they’re not going to be around much longer. And if you want original art from some of your favourite pencillers and painters in Artist Alley, take it from me and do it now.

Here’s what Biff Bam Pop! thinks you should be checking out on Fan Expo Canada Day 2:
