ATLANTA • Wookies, Daleks and scantily-clad comic book characters called Atlanta home this weekend while attending the annual Dragon Con science fiction and fantasy convention. It’s the rough equivalent of three consecutive days of Halloween held in high-rise Atlanta hotels.

The annual event features panel discussions on time-travel, round-table talks about the philosophical aspects of Star Trek and seminars on gory make-up techniques for horror film fans. Here is a look at some of the people who spent the weekend with like-minded fans of fantasy.
