With Christmas less than four weeks away, one annual tradition was in full swing on Sunday.

Taking in the sights and sounds for another year, several fans packed the Caboto Club for Christmas Comic Con 4 (C3-4.) Running from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., over 130 vendors sold comic book and pop culture merchandise as attendees in colourful costumes flooded the busy venue.

Beyond the visual spectacle and great deals, several guests from comics and TV or film were on hand as well. Local artists Jason Fabok (Justice League,) David Finch (Wonder Woman) and writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman) took time out of their busy schedules to greet the hometown crowd. Legendary silver age artist and guest of honour, Jim Steranko (S.H.I.E.L.D.) shared stories of his time in the industry, while Tony Gray (artist/writer of GlassMonkey Studios’ Tales of the Incredible Conduit,) Jason Moore (inker for Batman Haunted Gotham, The Incredible Hulk,) legendary comic creator Arvell Jones (All-Star Squadron, Marvel Premiere,) Ken Wheaton (Popeye, Futurama, The Simpsons) and J. David Spurlock (Vanguard publisher, comics historian) rounded out this year’s line-up of comic book creators.

Television personalities included Kenny Vs Spenny star Kenny Hotz, along with Kevin Duhaney and Jeff Parazzo, the blue and white rangers from Power Rangers Dino Thunder. Eugene Clark was also celebrating the 10th anniversary of George Romero’s Land Of The Dead, where he played “big daddy” zombie in the film.

Other attractions included a cosplay costume contest hosted by AM 800/CTV’s Arms Bumanlag, photo booths from Photo Hut, Enchanted Adventure Parties‘ Kids Zone, a working Dalek, Darth Vader and two stormtroopers from Zap Zone, the 501st legion, homicidal haircuts from GlassMonkey Studios character Carla Homicide and a silent auction. the Nomad Ghostbusters, a non-profit spirit-chasing group who are authentically dressed, kept the convention spook-free as well.

Promoting literacy for children, those 10 and under receive free entry while admission to C3-4 is $10 for adults.
