South Carolina Comic Con 2016

On Saturday, April 2nd, I made a day trip to Greenville, South Carolina, along with my brother Alex. Our destination: the TD Convention Center in downtown Greenville and the 2016 South Carolina Comic Con. 

Comic Con's are always fun, especially for huge nerds like yours truly. They have everything from old comics to current graphic novels. Cosplayers in homemade outfits portraying everything from 80s Cartoon characters and current Cartoon characters, to Japanese Anime characters, superheroes and villains, and even video game characters. Also in attendance are celebrities like Stan "The Man" Lee and minor characters from hit sci-fi series and superhero action TV shows are there. Comic Conventions pretty much have everything under the sun that a serious geek can enjoy.

The geekdom and nostalgia were certianly strong that day. The following are photos me and Alex took that day. 

Long lines await those who did not show up early.
