Looking forward to the 2019 show! Apparently Spawn will be filmed in Toronto this year, hopefully that means there's a better chance of Todd McFarlane attending this years show. Think 2013 was the last year he attended.

While I realize this large, successful event is quite a ways away I was alarmed to see that CGC does not have the Canada Fan Expo as a place they will be setting up shop this year. Is this finalized or could things change?

may not be finalized, but given that they already have 2 shows that same weekend it may be tough for them.  They've been in years past so hopefully they'll be back again this year.

It really would be too bad if they didn't attend. I love the show but half the fun for me is getting signatures and remarks in person.

Wow that's an interesting rescheduling date for the Keystone show in Philadelphia. 

It would be disappointing if CGC chose not to support Fan Expo Canada by getting a booth that would enable fans, collectors and vendors to submit their books.

Unfortunately, we are the only show that weekend with a border involved, so that might be concern they are addressing. Perhaps they are waiting to find out who the guests are (they are significant but at this time not announced).

There will be several facilitators that can help I'm sure (Gotham, Paradise, Twin Cities come to mind).  Mind you doing it yourself is often cheaper and more fun...but letting them handle the process/shipping can be worth it.

For sure. There are a lot of great people out there to help facilitate but doing it myself is all the fun. I could just do it all online otherwise.

I hope this doesn't also mean there will be no 'special tickets' like the Jock ones last year.

There will be special tickets, and we’ll still coordinate things to have a witness available.

Can’t wait! Will the first round of comic guests be announced at that time?

If any comic guests are announced it will just be our 2019 headliner, not a full wave of multiple comics guests.

@Kevin Boyd Great news that Jim Lee will be back this year. Assume there will likely be packages again like previous years for a separate signing (non-graded and graded?) Not sure if that will depend on whether CGC is there or not (I think the Jim Lee one from 2017 was official CGC reps at the signing, vs other special events where it's ComicSketchArt reps (Eg. at the Snyder/Capullo events)

Yup. We'll have someone facilitating the CGC/Valdemort special event. Whether it's a witness from CSA or Gotham Central if CGC decides not to come up in any capacity.
