Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Comic book fans were able to sift through rare finds at Rockford’s Comic Book Convention, and attendees came from all over to see what they could find.

Organizers say for the avid and serious fans who shop for books once a week, the convention allows them to find better selections for a lower cost.

“They usually come here to find better deals than they would on something,” said organizer of the Comic Book Convention, Alan Morton. “Because there’s comic books here and you can buy a stack of 50 of them for $20, or you can find something is uncommon because there’s comics, because just because something is old doesn’t mean it’s worth a lot, but it’s sort of like a demand.”

This was the eleventh year of the convention.
