Fans of movies, TV, comics, sci-fi, cosplay, anime and video games flocked to China's first ever Comic Con in Shanghai, Saturday. The inaugural event was marked by thousands of fans dressed up as their favourite cartoon and film characters. Events at the convention included a cosplay competition, face painting and a meet-and-greet session with comic book artists such as Adi Granov (Iron Man), David Finch (Batman: The Dark Night) and Chinese artists including Zhang Moyi, Wang Maomao, J*RYU and Benjamin. ReedPOP, the producer of Comic Con and other top-ranking pop culture events, decided to host a convention in China as part of the company's strategy to expand into new markets. The opening of Shanghai's Comic Con follows the inauguration of Singapore Toy; Game & Comic Convention; Australia's Oz Comic Con; PAX Australia; Star Wars Celebration Europe; Paris Comic Con and India Comic Con.
