Cosplayers, actors, wrestlers and even some animals will take over the Camden Shrine Club from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 3 for the first-ever Camden Comic Con. Comic con is short for comic book convention, a term that has expanded to cover a variety of usually one- to three-day festivals celebrating at least something -- if not everything -- to do with science fiction, fantasy, superheroes and even Bigfoot. The Camden Comic Con is the creation of John Stamey, a Myrtle Beach resident who grew up in Morganton, N.C., off I-40 east of Asheville.
