Photos: Eugene Comic Con



The first Eugene Comic Con in ten years was held this past weekend at the Lane Events Center to a resounding success. Thousands of comic fans flooded the conventional hall for genre celeb meet & greets, artist signings, panels, and more. But the ultimate highlight of the show was the attendees themselves – many of whom came decked out in cosplay. These costumes, many hand-made, wowed the record-setting crowds.
