VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Tidewater Comicon returned to the Virginia Beach Convention Center for another year of fun!

Many attendees dressed up as their favorite comic book and movie characters. Celebrity guests included Jason Mewes (Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), plus stars of The CW's hit series The Flash, Violett Beane and Norfolk native John Wesley Shipp.

Hundreds of comic book dealers, artists and exhibitors had booths and the convention, the largest of its kind in Virginia. Some of the activities included a cosplay contest, panels, a tattoo corner and game zone.

Attendees snapped up free Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow swag from the WGNT 27 booth. WGNT is a proud media sponsor of Tidewater Comicon.
