Danville hosts its first Comic Con
DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- Danville hosted its first ever Comic Con today at Averett University's North Campus.
The event drew a big crowd with many dressed in unique costumes like Mario and Luigi to Deadpool.
There were vintage comic books stands and even the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones was there for people to take photos next to.
One teenager from North Carolina dressed as Pennywise from Stephen King's classic book IT.
She said she has attended several Comic Cons and was excited to check out the first one in Danville.
"It's way bigger than I thought it was going to be. It's like way bigger and there's so much going on and everybody's really nice, so it's just a good time. I can't wait to walk around and scare a bunch of people," 16-year-old Gracyn Henderson said.
She said it took her several hours to get her costume and make-up done, but she enjoyed it.
