The Big Apple Con was this weekend, and media guests equaled, or possibly outnumbered, the number of comic book guests. While Wizard’s definition of a celebrity might be a bit broad, the world of film was well represented at the convention.

The DeLorean from Back to the Future was a key attraction. The booth was selling DeLorian T-Shirts for $45. You could by four for that price at the Stylin’ Online booth.

It wouldn’t be a comic con without fans dressing up in character. There were a lot of people as Batman, the Joker and any number of Star Wars people. But these guys were some of the best.

Did I say Star Wars?
