Ah, the comic convention.  An event we look forward to.  It’s our Disneyland, our Christmas, our birthday rolled into one.  A venue filled with comic books, graphic novels, trade paperbacks, artwork, sketchwork, sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, cosplayers, artists, writers, creators, and a slew of vendors.  A comic smorgasbord to whet our palette.  Deals are being made by vendors, celebrities are partaking in photo ops, and people are getting photos with some of the amazing cosplayers.
