Geeks unite for Mississippi Comic Con

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A parade of superheroes descended on the Capital City this weekend for the Mississippi Comic Con.

The event, which kicked off Saturday morning at the Mississippi Trade Mart, featured vendors, panels with celebrities and dozens of cosplayers who dressed up especially for the occasion.

"There are celebrities here. We've got two of the Boondock Saints, which is pretty awesome. We've got Brutus Beefcake doing a panel right now, the wrestler. We've got a ton of comic book artists, and there's a ton of vendors. So there's a lot of stuff to do," organizer Greg Hanks said.

The Mississippi Comic Con continues Sunday as well, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
