There were bodysuits, boots and masks galore in San Diego as thousands of comic, superhero and anime fans flocked to the Comic-Con last week. Highlights of this year’s Comic-Con include the introduction of the first female “Doctor Who”, played by British actress Jodie Whittaker, and the introduction of actor Johnny Depp as the pale and

The annual four-day event, started as a get-together for sci-fi fans to trade comic books in 1970, is now the largest comic book convention of its kind, with over 130,000 people attending guest panels and visiting the venues featuring paintings, comics, movies, TV shows and gaming programming.
