Apart from the regular meet-n-greets with artists, both local, and non, Chris Butcher of The Beguiling and TCAF is running one is specifically for kids (12-5pm @ Palmerston Library). The ever charismatic Chris can show you the way of the panel and point you to something that suits your tastes. Participating shops downtown include The Silver Snail, Hairy Tarantula's, 3rd Quardrant, and 1,000,000 Comics. But for the full list of participating shops, the FCBD site has a nifty store locator to help you out.
The list is lengthy and worth-while enough to bother getting your kiester off the couch and over to your local shop. My top pick is Top Cow's BROKEN TRINITY PREVIEW, along with HELLBOY/B.P.R.D., ALL STAR SUPERMAN #1, and X-MEN. I did a review of The Stranded and Dan Dare, and while it really didn't work for me, at least you don't have to spend a dime trying it out. There's also a silver list that gets limited distribution, as well as some figure giveaways, including a snazzy re-tooled Iron Man Heroclix figure.
