Montreal Comiccon will have over 150 activities over the course of three days: Panels, workshops, concerts, improv, board games, screenings, autograph sessions, photo ops and so much more. The wide variety includes the worlds of Anime, with several fun filled Anime themed contests; comic books, with creators showing others how it’s done; video games, with playable games from the 80s to today; live dubbing sessions, to know more about how it’s done; and the return of the Gladiator Arena, thanks to All Roads Lead to Rome. There will be a little something for everyone, with one important new feature, the addition of a dedicated Kid Zone with activities for those 12 and under.
A significant portion of Montreal Comiccon is dedicated to video games, with a very special focus dedicated to e-Sports. For this year’s activities, there will be a free play section and a Showmatch of Rainbow Six Siege. Fans can look forward to tournaments for Counter Strike Global Offensive, League of Legends and Overwatch. In collaboration with Hearthstone Québec, Hearthstone Ontario, and Earthroot Gaming, Montreal Comiccon will host the first Canadian Challenger Invitational for the popular game Hearthstone, where 16 players will face-off for a monetary prize pool. There will be a prize pool of $5000.00 for all tournaments combined. We are also happy to announce a special eSports ticket for fans that wish to arrive early to participate in the tournaments.
