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.
