'Sharknado' meets 'Walking Dead' at Motor City Comic Con

The stars of "The Walking Dead" and "Sharknado" have done battle with zombies and, well, sharks. They're facing a different kind of horde this weekend.

Tens of thousands of fans are expected at the 27th annual Motor City Comic Con, which got underway Friday in suburban Detroit. The three-day pop-culture extravaganza welcomes dozens of celebrities from TV and film as well as hundreds of comic book creators, writers and artists.

Michael Goldman, owner of Motor City Comic Con, predicted this would be the biggest event yet with more than 55,000 attendees expected at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, up from last year's record of 50,000.
