ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Southwest Georgia welcomed superheroes, comic book characters, and fans alike during the weekend.

Epicon returned to Albany after a successful year in 2015.

The convention's second year brought in even more con-goers and characters.

Some of the most popular comic book heroes and villians are attending the two day event.

Visitors say they came to celebrate their fandom and a bond that brings them all together.

"Seeing the crowd getting together, seeing everybody's faces light up when they get to see the guests, seeing all the amazing merchandise and stuff like that. Seeing people actually bring characters to life. It's all just very rewarding," said organizer Timothy Haire.

Epicon continues all day Sunday starting at 9 a.m.
