Free Comic Book Day and Star Wars Day are an annual event to get readers to visit Victoria, BC’s Nerd Row.
May the Fourth Be With You, because two pop culture events collided together to provide the public with a gaze at what it’s like to be a Star Wars fan and comic book aficionado. While people walked the streets in costume, the children may well be enjoying the sun in a park, reading the latest antics from popular brands like Spongebob Squarepants, Sesame Street or Strawberry Shortcake. An older crowd may have been going for regular favourites like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars or X-men.

In this series, several animal factions that were once at peace are now at war. Friends become enemies and sometimes the truces are not easy. The Lions, Crocodiles, Eagles, Wolves and Ravens make up some of these groups.
The first two episodes made its premiere in March, and this program shows plenty of potential of unseating LEGO’s own Ninjago. But as for when the series will go into full swing, that will not be until September ’13 in Canada at least. The LEGO representative at Fan Expo Vancouver ’13 confirmed this detail.
