Fans of comics, superheroes and cosplay gathered in downtown Durham this weekend for the annual NC Comicon event.
The event, held at the Durham Convention Center, is in its seventh year in the Triangle and eighth year in the state. Some fans dressed up as classic superheroes, like Captain America and Spiderman, while others honored recent sci-fi hits like Netflix’s Stranger Things series.
The gathering and all its related events over the weekend came down to one thing: fans’ love of comic books.
