If you can’t get to San Diego Comic Con this weekend, you can do the next best thing at the New World Comic Con at the Oklahoma City State Fairgrounds.

New World owner Buck Berlin says he has a great variety of vendors.

"We have a whole bunch of local artists that will draw you just about anything you want. We have some other comic dealers coming. We have fantastic face painters. We have ladies that are doing actual custom plush dolls."

The event on Saturday also includes a kids’ carnival, Super Hero School, panelists, a Cosplay contest and ends with a gameshow.
