Cosplayers, balloon sculptors and comic book fans united at Fantasticon in Mount Clemens this weekend.

The Street Team and The Flash came to take photos with fans, as well as take a bite out of superhero culture.

“It’s an awesome culture to be a part of,” said cosplayer Alloy Ash. “Everybody is so friendly and you get to meet all sorts of interesting people. I love it, it’s very unique.”

The event catered to both hardcore and new fans alike.

“I’ve been a comic book collector my whole life, so I love it,” said event coordinator Joe Nieporte. “And I love the fact that the genre is getting more and more popular with the tv shows like the Flash and Arrow. It’s just getting bigger and bigger and I love it.”

Speaking of new fans, the convention was a great place for younger kids to meet artists and writers.

“It’s great to see kids come up all excited,” said artist Kevin Meinart. “Getting to make a sketch for them makes my day.”

“My favorite thing about writing is it’s fun,” said Roger McKenzie, a comic book writer. “It’s absolutely fun and it’s fun to get feedback from fans.”

Overall, the Street Team had a great time at Fantasticon and they’re looking forward to Fantasticon 2015.
