Novi, Mich. (AP) The stars of shows such as "The Walking Dead" and "Sharknado" are converging on a suburban Detroit convention center for what organizers say will be the biggest Motor City Comic Con yet.
The 27th annual three-day pop-culture extravaganza that got underway Friday will welcome dozens of celebrities from the worlds of TV and film as well as hundreds of comic book creators, writers and artists and tens of thousands of fans to the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
Motor City Comic Con owner Michael Goldman says it's a place where fans' "inner geek can come out."
Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, who star in this summer's fourth installment of the campy smash "Sharknado" franchise on SyFy,
signed autographs and posed for photos during Friday's opening-day session.
