Comic Con fun for all!

What do stormtroopers, an award winning author, board game enthusiasts and food truck aficionados have in common? They all gathered this past Saturday at Chantilly High School and geeked out at Fairfax County Public Library's first ever Library Comic Con.

This free event was a great success and welcomed hundreds of participants. Author and illustrator Gene Luen Yang signed tons of books, and fans and librarians alike swooned over Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature and a MacArthur Fellow.

Attendees played a variety of board games, learned how to craft cosplay costumes, tested their wits with nerd jeopardy and checked out the many vendors selling games, books and delicious treats.
