The super power of comics was lifted to new heights at our city’s annual San Diego International Comic-Con gathering downtown. Fans arriving from land, sea and air united for the 40th edition of the monumental event that spans the worlds of comics, film, TV, games, pop culture and art. Along with the yearly masquerade contest, aficionados had opportunities to meet and greet their favorite celebrities from comic book artists and writers to movie stars during the spectacular 4-day convention.
