The second annual ComicFest is running through October 6 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel and Convention Center.

“Some of us Comic-Con founders and other folks who put on the early Comic-Cons joined together to put on a new ‘old-school’ comic con,” says organizer Mike Towry.

This year’s 3-day event features sci-fi author Larry Niven, whose storied career is celebrated at an on-site coffeshop and snack bar, Draco Tavern, “Earth’s first multi-species coffee bar,” patterned after the watering hole from his same-named novel. Niven will be appearing on various panels, as well as manning his own display booth where he's signing copies of his books and comic books featuring his work, including the locally-published Deepest Dimension Terror Anthology from Hillcrest's Revolutionary Comics studio.

Also appearing is local artist Mike Miller, best known for DC’s Injustice: Gods Among Us (#1 selling digital comic in the world) and the cover artist for the graphic novel edition of A Game of Thrones.

I heard the good Doctor arrived via a particularly noisy Tardis that landed over at Horton Plaza - that's right, (wait for it...) Horton Heard a Who.

The next stop makes the Star Wars cantina look like an IHOP.

This Larry Niven fan flew in all the way from Mars to get his book autographed.

Whatever they're planning to do on their next Arabian Night apparently involves a hammer nutcracker designed by Thor...

One of these people just emerged from a walk-in freezer, and the other had their eyeglass prescription filled by Dr. Cyclops...

For some reason, I find myself humming "Jungle Love, it's driving me crazy, crazy..."

None

Sometimes all a cosplayer needs is some duct tape and a little runny mascara. And a place to hang the keys to your PT Cruiser...

There's the signpost up ahead, your next stop...the Draco Zone!

None

The Draco Tavern looks like it would be right at home on the original Enterprise.

None

Presumably the Martian buffet, or a table reserved for Jack White and Sammy Hagar.
