EL CENTRO — There were no hearts and flowers, and none of the gooey gestures typically associated with the greeting card holiday celebrated a day earlier.  But make no mistake: Love was in the air throughout the Martin Luther King Jr. Pavilion at Eighth Street and Adams Avenue Saturday afternoon for the Imperial Valley Comic-Con.

Nearly anyone manning a booth, visiting an exhibit or sporting a costume showed up to express love for something associated with the event.

Ruben Najera Tellez congratulations on the successful 3rd Comic-Con event. With this event you brought a lasting smile to local businesses and residents and continue to do so, with your Metahumans Comic business. You are a magnificent one of a kind person.
