THANK YOU to Everyone Who Came Out for the 2016 Superhero 5k!

This past weekend, Florida Comics Experience continued on our journey to be a part of the Space Coast community by taking part (for our second time) in the Superhero 5K Race & One Mile Fun Run hosted by the Friends of Children of Brevard.

Along with helping in the preproduction and planning on the run, the FCE team hosted a costume contest as part of the morning’s events!  The contest, sponsored in part by our friends at Famous Faces & Funnies and Viera Comics, drew over thirty entrants and was a resounding success!

Best Male – Bib #2421 Jason Burgos as Batman
Best Female – Bib #2187 Emily Calvert as Flash
