But don’t get the plot twisted: ComicCon’s not all about the actors, as it always serves as a platform to celebrate the creators. Those attending will get the chance to meet folks like Kevin Eastman, creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and legendary voice actress Paige O’Hara, widely known as Belle from Beauty and The Beast.

With over 200 activities over the course of three days, including panels, workshops, concerts, masquerade, improv, board games, screenings, autograph sessions, photo ops and so much more, there’s bound to be something for everybody.

Increasingly a family-friendly event, the Montreal Comiccon has activities for kids ages 12 and under, including Nerf battles and character face painting in the Family Zone.
