Video Report–#Trumbull CT–Thousands turned out, many in full costume for the 2013 ComiConn in Trumbull today.  It was the fourth annual, the second in the Trumbull Marriott.  There were many things to catch the interest of the comic book super hero.  Comic books dating back to probably the very first one to creators of the TV shows were in attendance to sign autographs and meet the fans. Larry Kenny, voice of ThunderCats, Coco Puff bird and Count Chocula.  Bob Camp, creator of Ren and Stimpy as well as comic artists were on hand for the fans.  A replica of the Batmobile, a Bat Motorcycle even a R2D2 from Star Wars  were some of the fun toys fan were able to pose with.  For me it was just watching those dressed in costume playing in character.  I had to laugh at many who thought what I was wearing was a costume for the event.  The only thing different I was wear a Superman shirt underneath a white dress shirt like Clark Kent truing into Superman.  My fedora with my press pass is my everyday costume for reporting.  Many seemed surprised when i set the camera down and did a real interview.  It was a really fun day!  My two teen kids had a great time too!
