Comic book, gamer, and sci-fi fans alike flocked to Mobicon. This marked the 17th year for the event. It was held at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Mobile.
The event is aimed to be family-friendly and is for people of all ages. Fans came dressed in costumes to pay homage to their favorite characters.
Lara Parker, who played Angelique in the popular tv show “Dark Shadows” made an appearance. The event offers all who attend a chance to share their love for their favorite movies, games and comic books with like-minded fans.
However, the event is not all fun and games. Sixty percent of the earnings from Mobicon 17 were donated to a foundation. This year, the organizations choose to donate to the Teal Foundation which is a group that raises awareness about ovarian cancer.
