  • Costumes

    As evidenced by the number of costumes in the convention hall, fashion is a key element for many at WonderCon. A few booths carried everything from Edwardian gowns and corsets to cartoon-character costumes.

  • Alien vs. Predator

    Two costumed attendees treated fans to a sequel of "Alien vs. Predator," but with more hugs and a lot less gore than the original movie.

  • Golden Age books

    Thousands of books from the "golden age" of comics--the period of time from the late 1930s to the early '50s, when comic books saw a surge in popularity. That growth was due in large part to the creation of many of the superhero characters--such as Superman, Batman and The Flash--that are still popular today.
