NORTHERN NATIONAL ESTABLISHES CANADIAN CONVENTION LANDMARK THROUGH THE LAUNCH OF ITS SUPER G PROGRAM
Super G Offers First-Ever Kaiju Convention Experiences in Canada
Windsor, ON. Brimstone Games presents the Northern National Collectors’ Convention (Northern National) is pleased to announce the launch of its Super G program this fall at Caesars Windsor, from September 29 to October 1, 2023.
“Super G will represent an entire fandom dedicated to the culture of the kaiju film franchises,” says Northern National president, Jeremy Renaud. “Kaijutranslates to strange beasts in the genre of Japanese giant monster movies. For fans, Super G will offer first-ever Kaiju convention experiences in Canada.”
Super G will offer fans a variety of guest celebrities and artists, direct from Japan and around the world, who worked on Kaiju franchises making either their first-ever or first-Canadian convention appearances. Inclusion opportunities feature program panels, contests, experiences, theatrical showings, collectables, cosplay, and more.
Though Super G will focus on Japanese giant monsters, both past to present, it will reach beyond to a broader scope that encompasses anime and related horror.
“Super G was never originally intended in the initial design of this convention,” says Renaud. “It was spurred out of a meeting with Tim Bean, an agent and proprietor for his agency Japan’s Legends, that had evolved these past two months. Working with Tim and his team, discussion led to interest and eventual brand development.”
“I’m thrilled to help lend our expertise and core series clients who will attend the Northern National this Fall”, says Japan’s Legends owner, Tim Bean. “Our team united quickly with Jeremy’s so much so that our liaisons in Japan, Maki and Tetsuya Takarada were instrumental in developing the brand through its early concepts and eventual classic hand-brushed strokes.”
