The weekend was filled with great moments, including Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre launched the festivities Friday afternoon with a jovial ribbon-cutting ceremony. His presence did not go unnoticed, as a multitude of fans approached him to shake hands and take photographs.

On Saturday, Mr. Coderre hosted an official gold book signing ceremony at Montreal’s City Hall, in which he personally welcomed celebrity Comiccon guests William Shatner, Manu Bennett (Spartacus), Brent Spiner just to name a few.
