The midwest's oldest and largest comic book convention kicks off Friday and runs through Sunday at Kansas City's Bartle Hall.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to cancel the event in 2020.
The event celebrates all things movies, comic books, and pop culture.
Organizers say they plan to follow the city's health and safety guidelines, which means those in attendance will need to wear a mask while inside the convention center.
Tens of thousands of masks are available to hand out to people who don't bring one to the building.
