Top Ten Non-Comic Book Related Attractions at Florida Supercon

Last comic book convention I attended was just that: a comic book convention. A small room in a hotel filled with dealers of rare and not so rare comics with maybe one table dedicated to baseball cards. One artist would be there to sign copies of comic books, and maybe if you asked nicely, he would draw an original sketch for you.

But comic books have blown up so big that actual comic books were hard to find at this past weekend's Florida Supercon. Merchants of comics and talented professionals were present in the massive two story complex housing this year's show, but they are a challenge to find nestled amongst sellers of swords, copies of movies on VHS, and the booth featuring former porn star Traci Lords.

So we present to you, the top ten non-comic book related attractions we spotted at 2013's Florida Supercon.
