  1. Even though I never got into sci-fi, horror, and comic books, the expo really does seem like a lot of fun. I was taken aback when I learned that you’re charged a fee to have your photo taken with a celebrity.

    • I’ve never really been into sci-fi either, but there are a few celebrities I would enjoy meeting. Yes, the photo fees are a bit steep, aren’t they? Cheers, Lori
