We may get our heart racing when seeing some of our favorite books, franchises and videogames displayed but there is nothing like actually meeting some of the stars that brought our geek passions to life.
Margot Kidder will always be well known as Lois Lane in the original Christopher Reeves Superman films. Although Lois Lane has been portrayed by various actresses. Margot Kidder was THE one to give us the sassy, brilliant and every-part-Superman’s-equal to the silver screen. We will never forgot her scene with the helicopter and one of the most famous quotes in movie history:
Superman: “ I’ve got you.”
Lois Lane: “You’ve got me? WELL, WHO’S GOT YOU?”

Although the show has long been off air, fans have never forgotten the character’s popularity. Dynamite Entertainment and Kevin Smith brought back The Six Million Dollar Man into a brand new, revamped comic book series with art by the famous Alex Ross (Kingdom Come).
The exhibit hall also had a one of a kind art gallery in the back. Several pieces caught the eye of attendees as they moseyed around for a closer look.
With pop culture being the only theme of this convention, we can see it well reflected among artists, as they give their own take on what pop culture means to them.
