Comic book and science fiction fans are descending on the Winnipeg Convention Centre this weekend for the fifth annual Central Canada Comic Con.

The three-day event is expected to be the biggest one yet, with 20,000 people estimated to walk through the doors, according to organizers.

This year’s guests include Orli Shoshan from Star Wars Episode II, Jack O’Halloran from Superman, James B. Winburn from Halloween, Garrett Wang form Star Trek and Rebecca Staab from Fantastic Four, just to name a handful.

Comic book artists and designers also get together and share their talent, and popular characters are portrayed on stage in the costume contest.

Last year, Adam West, Julie Newmar and Peter Mayhew were the big attractions (watch video).

Comic Con wraps up today and runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. One day passes are available at the door for $13.50.
