The CW50 Street team kicks off the Spring with a trip to a different universe… the Ypsilanti Comic Con! This dimension was filled with people in costumes of their favorite characters. We even saw the characters from the CW50 show, “The Arrow.”
Local vendors also showcased their artwork. Robert Gora, Jr. of Trench FX & Designs created alien creatures out of super sculpty materials because of his fascination with the genre. “I love the community. I’ve met really good friends that I only get to see at this [event],” said Heather Cooper of Phoenix Girl Creations.READ MORE: Former MDHHS Director, Robert Gordon To Receive $155,000 Payout After Resignation

Although the Ypsilanti Comic Con was small, it was a great way to dabble our way through the world of comic books. Whether you are a constant goer or a newbie to Comic Cons, this was an event worth experiencing.MORE NEWS: 17 Puppies Turned Into Detroit's Michigan Humane Society
