The event featured diverse artists and vendors,comics, collectibles, art, toys and other hard-to-find merchandise. There were unique panels, autograph sessions and photo-ops to give fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with some of their favorites such as Stan Lee. And Elvira “Mistress of the Dark,”
There were a large number of attendees cosplaying as their favorite characters. Many walked the convention floor, posing for anyone who wished to take their picture. In an effort to set a Guinness World Record for the Longest Link of Human Tetris some dressed up as Tetris pieces.
Held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, this was the perfect way to spend Halloween weekend.

One of the highlights for Saturday included pastry chef Duff Goldman presenting an almost life-size Hulk cake to comic book legend and convention namesake Stan Lee.

Interviews with the casts of “Game of Thrones,” “True Blood” and “My Little Pony” were also presented on Saturday. A cosplay contest rounded out the night with more than $10,000 in cash and prizes.
