Getting our Nerd on at Comic Con

Comic Con is the place to be for all of us who like nerding over stuff like comics, superheroes, movies, TV series, gaming, fandom and cosplay.

The Stockholm Comic Con was once again held at Kistamässan on the first weekend of November, and the event drew a large crowd, many of them all dressed up for the occasion in cosplay gear – or at the very least donning a superhero T-shirt (like yours truly with my Wonder Woman tee).

The aisles were filled with all kinds of collectibles, board games, science fiction books, comics, nerdy (read: cool) T-shirts and retro console games. The latest in computer/console gaming was also on display and the visitors had a chance to try out games like Tekken 7 or test the virtual reality with Playstation VR.

The convention also brought over some actors like Ricky Whittle (of The 100), Jason Isaacs (from Harry Potter) and Mehcad Brooks (from Supergirl). The kids also lined up in scores to meet with their YouTuber faves.

We bring you some pictures of all the coolness that went on.
