Shellane and Dean had a Gotham set piece the added to the photo op experience while Ivy and Selina Kyle was on board. Ivy Cosplay donned two variant Wonder Woman costume pieces while Princess Lymari wore the Dark Supergirl ensemble.

Maria Saber did a nice throwback for Mortal Kombat fans in her Sindel costume with authentic and alluring eyes representative of the character. Daisy Chain went off the chain with her Suicide Squad Harley Quinn outfit.

Comic book guests included graphic artist and illustrator Bill Marimon, comic colorist, Jeff Balke, Dark Horse artist Karl Moline, Chaos!

Other media guests, an artists alley, and book authors were prevalent showing off their latest creations to be admired in the homes of geeks in the central Florida area. The venue was nicely set upon a hilltop overlooking in a northward direction towards Highway 27 and the Citrus Tower. The weather was just perfect for the November event.

Historically the Clermont Comic Con got its start in 2015 with over a 1600 count of attendees front and center. That’s an exciting first start!
