NEW YORK — It was a who's who of comic book legends as the 10th annual Comic Con took the Javits Center by storm on Friday.

With another year came another growth spurt. An estimated 165,000 fans — a 15,000 increase from last year — are expected to be on hand for the four-day convention.

As usual, there was no shortage of characters.

It's also the one time of year comic book artists get the celebrity treatment.

Artist and author Tim Lattie is fully aware of the power of Comic Con after debuting his series "Night Stars" at last year's convention.

He's now in talks to make his comic book into a cartoon series.

One of the most anticipated events on the agenda this year is the return of the cult series "The X-Files." This weekend, producers will hold a screening of the reboot's premiere, three months ahead of its broadcast debut.
