PHOENIX - The Comicon sensation hit the Valley this weekend and appears to be almost twice as big as the year before.

It's a place where oddity is a commodity.

So many people showed up on Saturday, the fire marshal had to limit the number of entries by mid-afternoon.

“It’s a chance for me to be a celebrity until reality hits me in the face this weekend,” said one man dressed as Wolverine.

Comicon, for the unfamiliar, is a place where fans of pop culture -- from horror, to comics, to science fiction -- dress up and let out their inner demon.

“We come every year,” said Rhonda Winseck who was dressed up with her entire family. “It’s fun to walk around and see all the people.”

Comicon is best known for its convention in San Diego but its numbers are doubling every year in Phoenix.

“It’s for people who felt left out and now have a place to celebrate pop culture,” said Jillian Squires who runs marketing for the show.

She thinks more than 28,000 visitors will attend over the weekend. The cost is $30 to $40.

The featured guest was Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, from Star Trek fame.

Star Trek and Star Wars are the biggest draws, but it doesn’t stop there.

It’s a place where you can buy a gift and then speak to the person who created it, from comic books, masks, posters and so on.
