One of the many events at Comic-Con included 'Power Rangers: 20 Years and Beyond.'


There's nothing more pop culture-y than Comic-Con. The annual festival of fantasy, featuring legions of fans dressed as their favorite characters is in full swing down in San Diego. Well over 100,000 people show up every year, but it's about a lot more than comic books.

Madeleine talks to Mike Roe, KPCC's pop culture blogger, for a full rundown of the trends, events and costumes that are consuming this year's Con.
