Nearly 80,000 fans expected at this year's Phoenix Comicon event

80,000 fans are expected in downtown Phoenix this weekend for the Phoenix Comicon. It's the 13th year for the event, which brings out people dressed as their favorite comic book, sci-fi and fantasy characters.

May 28th marked the start of the four day event that's being held at the Phoenix Convention Center.

This Comicon is expected to beat last year's attendance of 77,000.

Stores, restaurants and hotels in the downtown area are expected to be packed.  There is a ton of stuff to buy; a "Rocky Horror Picture Show" cast reunion and you can get an autograph with people like "The Hulk," Lou Ferrigno or Christopher Lloyd and the DeLorean time machine.  If nothing else, it's the best people watching around.

VIDEO: FOX 10's Jill Monier has the details on the event.
