For the differences between Comic Con fans and EDC-goers, read on.

EDC won’t be the only place to see hordes of costumed fanatics this weekend—the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention hits the South Point over the same three days. Will there be crossover? That remains to be seen, but the Weekly couldn’t pass up the chance for a side-by-side comparison.

    • Attendees

      Comic Con: Card-carrying nerds. Basically, the kids who played Pokémon during homeroom.

      EDC: Party people. Basically, the kids who didn’t show up for homeroom.

    • Attire

      Comic Con: Avatar. X-Men. Poison Ivy à la Uma Thurman. Either way, you’re probably going to need some body paint.

      EDC: Futuristic warrior princess or slutty Oompa Loompa. Either way, you’re probably going to need some body paint.

    • Likely to happen

      Comic Con: An impromptu dance party with Rainbow Brite and a stripper-tastic Superwoman.

      EDC: An impromptu dance party with Rainbow Brite and a stripper-tastic Superwoman.

    • Likely to be overheard

      Comic Con: “Dude, there’s no contest. Iron Man would totally dominate Wolverine.” “Jim Lee signed my special-edition copy!”

      EDC: “Bro! BRO! Bro.” “Avicii signed my rack!”

    • Molly is ...

      Comic Con: The youngest member of Marvel’s teen supergroup, the Runaways. Duh.

      EDC: We don’t know, ask Cedric Gervais.
