AUSTIN (KXAN) - If you see a lot of grown-ups wearing costumes of their favorite super-hero this weekend in downtown Austin - it's not Halloween again.

Instead for the first time Comic Con is coming to Austin.

The event features not only comic books but some of the most popular sci-fi movies and lots of celebrities from various movies like Star Wars.

The actors who play Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, and Darth Maul will be signing autographs - as well as some former television stars.

"It's going to be Adam West, Burt Ward, Batman and Robin and we'll have the Bat Mobile. We have Lee Majors, the Six Million Dollar Man and Fall Guy and for the first time ever Lindsay Wagner and Richard Anderson. So we have the Bionic Woman and Oscar Goldman all together," said Peter Katz, WizardWorld.

The Austin Comic Con takes place Friday through Sunday at the Austin Convention Center.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
