I have never been to one of these festivals, but by the looks of it from inside these pages, it would have to be one of those most fantastical places, albeit, for a week or two.
The fans, the costumes, the panels, and of course the sneak peeks into movies or anything else you wanted to know about is all there. It would be one of those one moments in time, where you would experience everything at once. What a whirlwind!
I really loved the enthusiasm that the fans have for their most loved comic, movies, graphic novels and so much more. What would you want to do there ? I think I would want to experience a little of everything. That is if I had time to do so! Below, check out some of the costumes, fans, celebrities, and more inside the book.
