Exhibitors represented every kind of entertainment from movies to toys to books and comics.  Events included meet-ups for fandoms such as Supernatural, Doctor Who, Daredevil and  pretty much any pop culture tribe one could imagine.  Premiers included the first episode of the new television show Ash vs Evil Dead which starts on October 31st, an as-yet seen episode of Doctor Who and many, many first-time trailers were shows.  Panels discussed diversity in comics, women in comics, highlighted comic publishers such as DC Comics, Dynamite and Dark Horse.  Panels highlighted top and new television shows such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Ash vs Evil Dead, Pretty Little Liars and that is just the start of the long list of panels.IMG_1250 Celebrities were on hand for pictures and autographs including ComicCon favorite Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, Jennifer Morrison, Gina Torres,  and groupings such as Teen Wolf, Brimstone and Firefly.  Sadly, Billie Piper of Doctor Who fame cancelled, which has become a chronic issue with the star.IMG_1215IMG_1140
