Is your spider sense tingling? It should be, because the Captain's Comic Expo, Charleston's numero uno comic book and pop culture convention, is back today, March 9.

Hosted and organized by Captain's Comics and Toys, the expo mixes a love of comic books with local and professional artists, movies, music, toys, a jump castle, costumes, and other pop culture items. This community event is open to all ages with no comic book knowledge required.

Captain's Comic Expo will run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Masonic Hall at 1285 Orange Grove Road. Tickets for the event are  $5.
