The Albuquerque Comic Con is this weekend, January 12 and 13, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. This will be the third time the convention has brought together comic books, comic book artists, special guest stars and more for fans. Stars who will attend include Butch Patrick, who played Eddie on the tv show The Munsters, Dean Stockwell, well known actor from shows such as Battlestar Galactica, and Denise Crosby, who played Tasha Yar on Star Trek Next Generation.
Comic book fans already know what to expect at a convention. Besides comic books, there are collectibles, t-shirts, gear, the chance to meet a comic book artist or creator, talks, panels, games and more. Many dress as their favorite characters, which is part of the fun. Get your picture taken with Captain America, or R2D2.
Take a look at some photos of last year's Comic Book Expo to get an idea of what you can find at a comic convention.
