Los Angeles' only pop culture convention, Stan Lee's Comikaze, opens its doors today just in time for trick-or-treating and a full weekend of chances to dress up.

This year's show is set to be bigger and better than ever with huge stars from the screen and the printed page set to make appearances and more than 200 panels and screenings, not to mention a show floor filled with exhibitors showcasing gear from top brands.
