The Lafayette Hotel was invaded Sunday afternoon by a whole bunch of comic characters.

It's all part of the third annual River City Comic Con.

Vendors from around the region were there selling a variety of comic books, toys, videos and posters.

From Superman to Batman, Spider-man to the Hulk, people didn't waste anytime reading about their favorite superhero.

Local artists and film makers also made an appearance at the event.

"It's just a celebration. It's a day everyone with a common interest can get together, they can just geek out, have fun and find a little something they enjoy. And you might find something new you never seen before," says River City Comics Con Promoter, Jordan Lowe.

Kids and adults showed their super hero pride by participating in a judged costume contest and parade.

Many of the comics at the event were from the golden age (1940s) while others were from the silver age (1960s) vintage and some brand new. There was something for everyone.

A fourth annual event is being planned for next year. In the meantime, comic fans can find their latest issues in comic book stores in every major city in the MOV.
