Fans of comics, superheroes and cosplay gathered in downtown Durham this weekend for the annual NC Comicon event.
The event, held at the Durham Convention Center, is in its seventh year in the Triangle and eighth year in the state. Some fans dressed up as classic superheroes, like Captain America and Spiderman, while others honored recent sci-fi hits like Netflix’s Stranger Things series.
Before photographer Cornell Watson could open his new photo exhibit on UNC-Chapel Hill's campus, the university asked for the removal of specific images. Later, the university canceled his exhibition "Tarred Healing" altogether – less than a week before it was set to open.
