It was a party of unique proportions as collectors and fans united for the free family event.

A variety of collectibles were on hand for the trade show, along with a huge assortment of character trinkets, cards and, of course, comics. Lining up with Free Comic Book Day, Ebenezer’s gave out free comic books. Prizes were also awarded for best costumes.

The evening wrapped up with Star Wars Trivia at The Green Pub.
