Toronto Comicon sold

The Beat reports that Toronto Comicon is changing hands as Wizard CEO Gareb Shamus announces the purchase of the show from Peter Dixon, owner of Paradise Comics in the city. Toronto has another big mainstream show Fan Expo that has sci-fi and manga components. Heidi talks about the financial difficulties of Comicon and bad blood between the two shows in her blog post.

For those keeping score at home, when you add TCAF to the list that makes three separate comic shows held in Toronto. It’s a hotbed for comic fans and talent.
