Comicon

Hallowe’en came early in Hamilton Saturday, as hundreds descended on the Convention Centre downtown to take in Comicon, a convention of all things related to comic books, video games, superheroes, villians and everything in between. Many of the attendees were in full costume, making photographing this a dream. Every assignment should be this easy. Here’s a look at the event. – Barry Gray
