INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Big Ten basketball fans were not the only visitors downtown this weekend. Comic book fans flocked to the Circle City for the first-ever Indiana Comic Con.

More than 14,000 people came to the Convention Center to check out all the comics, magazines, toys, games and artwork on display.

Many of the visitors dressed up for the occasion.

“You get to dress up, you get to be somebody else and it’s not Halloween. It’s just lots of fun,” Tiffany Canary said Sunday.
