Paradise City Comic Con 2016 | Pictures

The Paradise City Comic Con started Friday and ends Sunday at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. The convention is stacked with a bill of celebrities and pop-culture figures. Topping the lineup is actor Ron Perlman, known for playing the musclebound demon "Hellboy" and an unruffled motorcycle-gang patriarch on "Sons of Anarchy." Actor Peter Weller, who portrayed the cyborg police officer RoboCop in three movies, will also appear.

Other guests will include Summer Glau ("Firefly"), Tara Reid (the "Sharknado" franchise), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian in "Star Wars") and Tim Russ and Ethan Phillips (both of "Star Trek: Voyager"). 

Admission is $30-$40 for single-day tickets. Go to
