If you weren’t at this year’s Montreal Comic-con, which was held from the 12th until the 14th of September at the Palais des Congres, then did you ever miss out. Although the Montreal convention isn’t normally known for its selection of guests, this year the con managed to not just pull in a few stars, but a few living legends too.
Gracing the city with his iconic presence was legendary film writer and director, George A. Romero. The man who invented zombies with his film Night Of The Living Dead (1968) not only came to Montreal, not only had his own Q&A panel with Ken Foree (known best for his work in Dawn Of The Dead, 1978), but had a booth where fans of his work could meet him one on one and speak with him. He was down to earth, quick as a whip, and a genuinely nice guy as his fans lined up to ask him the questions that have been on their mind since seeing his films.
