NIKOLAOS STAVROU THERE were enough storm troopers and light sabres to make you feel you were in a George Lucas movie. But Star Wars fans were not the only ones catered for at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo at The Dome, Olympic Park on the weekend. Now in its seventh year, the annual event had something for fans of TV, movies, anime, comic books and video games. No matter what imaginary uni- verse brings you entertainment, you were likely to find it here. Organisers boasted this year's event was the biggest yet and that wasn't hard to believe. Queues at opening time on Saturday and Sunday were so long it took close to an hour to get inside. Once inside, though, things were a lot more managable. Fans dressed like their favourite characters were everywhere. From superheroes to anime characters the attention to detail in the costumes was amazing. Stalls selling merchandise of all sorts lined the isles and people of all ages happily wandered around for a bargain or free entertain- ment. The main attraction of Supanova though was the invited guests. Movie and TV stars such as Jared Padalecki (Supernatural), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica, Reaper), Jewel Staite (Firefly, Serenity) and Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek) signed auto- graphs, answered questions and posed for photos throughout the weekend. For special-pass holders there was a live-to-LA interview with director Guillermo del Toro and actress Selma Blair, promoting their upcoming movie Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. International comic-book artists held their own as they sketched personalised pictures of fans' favourite characters on request. Professional wrestlers and live stage shows gave crowds some extra entertainment and stars of the show Gladiators fitted in per- fectly with all the other costumed personalities.
