COMIC book, science fiction and fantasy characters stepped out of the page and screen and into real life at the second Comic-Con event at Loch Lomond Shores.

Thousands of people, many of them in superhero fancy dress, flocked to the bonnie banks for the event at the weekend, which gave fans from throughout Scotland a chance to browse and buy books, comics, action figures, hand-made crafts and artworks.

Cosplay competitions, with a Scottish ‘Captain Jack Sparrow’ among the judges, and live wrestling added to the entertainment on offer.

Among the characters captured by our photographer on Saturday were stars from Star Wars, the cast of the Assassin’s Creed film and video game, the American steampunk band Steam Powered Giraffe, Judge Dredd, X-Men’s Beast, and longer-established comic book and fairytale favourites such as Batman and Cinderella.

The Big Glasgow Comic Page, who organised the event, said: “Thank you to everyone that attended the event. We had an awesome weekend!”
