Comic Books and Comic-Con : No stars at Comic-Con due to the Hollywood strike

No stars at Comic-Con due to the Hollywood strike

Comic books, video games and colorful "cosplay" outfits took center stage at Comic-Con as the giant pop culture event kicked off Thursday without its usual A-list stars due to the Hollywood strike.

Braving the soaring heat, tens of thousands of fans dressed as characters from Wonder Woman to Barbie and Ken flocked to San Diego, California.

While Comic-Con typically draws headlines for glitzy movie announcements and panels featuring stars like Tom Cruise and Dwayne Johnson, fans told AFP they welcomed the chance to focus on costumes and comics – the event's original focus.

"Honestly, I'm more excited about the cosplay," said Janelle Hinesley, 32, who came dressed as Astrid from the "How to Train Your Dragon" films.

"Besides, I can't sit in this, so we're not going to any panels right now," she added, pointing to the giant axe strapped to her back.

*Ahem*

I believe according to the Turtle Power song, by Partners in Kryme and released in 1990, That Raphael is the leader of the group, transformed from the norm by the nuclear goop

That is all.

Ding Dong! 🤡🌎
