ST HELENS' first comic con proved a resounding success in the town hall on Saturday. 

The event saw sci-fi, fantsy and comic book enthusiasts flock to the town hall for a host of themed activities.

Victoria Square was taken over by exhibits with a model of the Dolorean used in Back to the Future and Ghostbusters' Stay Puft Marshmallow Man among them.

And Star contributor Robbob was on hand to get some behind the scenes shots featuring guests, exhibits and some of the best costumes on show.

There were also themed panel question and answer sessions with guests from series Game of Thrones, Doctor Who and Star Wars.
