FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – Appleseed Comic Con wraps up Sunday at the Grand Wayne Center in downtown Ft. Wayne.
Thousands of people trickled in and out of the convention center this weekend to get their hands on new products and meet with artists. This year, Comic Con brought legendary artist, Jaime Hernandez, to town. Hernandez is the co-creator of the comic “Love and Rockets,” which he’s sustained with his two brothers since 1982. 

He is also known for his contributions to The New Yorker, and has worker on album art like Los Lobos' 2006 release “The Town and the City.”

Organizers say Appleseed Comic Con is like no other.
“What sets us apart from other shows is that we're focusing more on the creators. We're not focusing on B-list celebrities or some washed up so-and-so. We love meeting those people too, but that's not what this show is about. We're focusing on the medium itself,” said Comic Con Organizer, Zach Kruse.

The show wraps up Sunday at 6 p.m.
