Is this your first comic book show?
Dress up if you like. It’s not a must, but it sure is fun. Bring a camera. It is considered polite to ask permission to take pictures, but most people will not mind.
If you are interested in asking for sketches or buying comics and toys, bring cash. Not everyone takes credit cards.
