Some of the best-known characters from the world of pop culture appeared at the inaugural Granite City Comic Con.
And the festival proved a major hit with the public with over 4,000 comic aficionados attending the event at Transition Extreme.
The new event was committed to raising cash for CLAN Cancer Support and managed to bring in £2,500 from big-hearted attendees.
And they did themselves proud by raising more than £2,500 for the north east charity.
It's a figure which has clearly impressed CLAN's fundraising manager Susan Crighton.
Susan said: “Saturday’s turnout was beyond anyone’s expectations and we were absolutely thrilled to be involved with the very first event of its kind here in Aberdeen.
“Donations from the day are still being counted, but it looks as if the total is going to be over £2,500 which is truly fantastic.
"I’d like to thank the organisers for selecting CLAN alongside all those who attended and took the time to donate to the charity.
“There was a fantastic atmosphere throughout the event all day on Saturday – even our own mascot CLANCY was getting in on the fun, helping entertain people as they queued for entry.
“All funds raised from Saturday’s event will go towards CLAN’s provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer across the north-east of Scotland. These donations will make a massive difference.”
Organisers of the Comic Con have already confirmed they will return, bolder, bigger and better, in 2016.
The likelihood is that the next convention will stretch over a whole weekend and be staged at a larger venue.
