JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi Comic Con is back in Jackson at the MS Trade Mart for a ninth year.

Long lines formed outside the Mississippi Trade Mart, Saturday, for the two day comic book, pop culture and super hero festival.

The state's annual fan convention began in 2008.

Fans came dressed as their favorite characters and get the chance to meet and talk with cartoonists, comic book writers and artists, stars and even pro wrestlers.

Also appearing this weekend is Ernie Hudson, star of the Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 movies.   

"Everyone is have a good time. We had the kids. Scooby Doo's here and the dude from Ghostbusters and some of the ones that wrote comic books are here," said MS Comic Con Volunteer Lea Gunter. "There's different vendors that are selling costumes and comic books and stuff." 

Mississippi Comic Con continues, Sunday, at the Trade Mart from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
