Comic Book Artists, Characters Celebrated At Cherry Capital Comic Con

All your favorite "Star Wars", cartoon and superhero characters are making a special appearance in Grand Traverse County this weekend at the Cherry Capital Comic Con.

It’s Northern Michigan’s biggest comic book and entertainment expo.

The comic con event fills the Grand Traverse Resort with thousands of fans, more than 150 vendors, comic book artists and legends.

The event is less than a decade old, but already attracts more than 4,000 people.

Whether it’s the costume contest, panel discussions or the curiosity the Cherry Capital Comic Con experience is one of a kind.

Event Coordinator Mike Akerley says, “When you go to the bigger shows and I’ve done a lot of them you end up waiting in line a lot and when you’re here you really get to just really have some personal time with the guests and the artists.”

Cherry Capital Comic Con ends Sunday at 5 p.m.
