FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Another weekend celebrating the art of comics, as hundreds gathered for the Appleseed Comic Con.

Hundreds of people headed to downtown Fort Wayne Saturday for the Appleseed Comic Con. It was a chance for comic book fans, old and new, to celebrate the art of comics, and meet some comic book creators.

There were plenty of comics for sale, as well as toys and statues. Appleseed Comic Con Founder and Organizer Zack Kruse says the most wonderful thing about comic books is that they’re for everyone.

"Comic fans are everyone. They're five, they're 15, they're 20, they're 30 they're 40. They're men, they're women. It's a medium that transcends gender, and race, and age, and all that kind of stuff. And, it really just speaks to everyone,” Kruse said.

People even came to the event dressed up as they're favorite characters. Kruse says it's fascinating how fans are not only dedicated to the comic book world, but to that individual character as well.
