SPECIAL EVENT | Roc-Con 

If you're disappointed you couldn't make it to Comic-Con International in San Diego this year, and that tickets are already sold out for next month's New York Comic-Con in NYC, turn that frown upside down and head to Roc-Con 2013, Rochester's very own convention. With sci-fi, comics, gaming, horror, and anime, you can let your inner geek go wild.

Special guests include Chris Doohan, from the "Star Trek" film "Into Darkness," Noel Gugliemi, from "The Walking Dead" and "The Dark Knight Rises," and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa from the film "Mortal Kombat." And those are just the actors. There are also authors and voice actors who will be making appearances. Add in a variety of vendors, panels, and a variety of gaming tournaments, and you have one heck of a little convention.

Roc-Con runs Friday, September 20, 5-10 p.m.; Saturday, September 21, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Sunday, September 22, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Main Street Armory (900 E. Main St.). Prices range from $9 to $26, but will be more at the door. Visit rochesterscifianimecon.com for more info.
