If you're heading to Tampa Bay Comic Con today just for a glimpse of Emily Kinney, who plays Beth Greene on The Walking Dead television series, there's plenty more going on.

Comic Con is back for a 13th year with interactive elements, including Nerd Trivia and speed dating. While open to cosplaying, Comic Con prides itself on its family-friendly atmosphere while catering to various fan bases.

At 1 p.m., comic book artist Clayton Crain hosts a panel discussion about comic creation. Speed dating begins at 2 p.m., and entertainer Drake Bell appears at 3 p.m. to talk about his work. A costume contest starts at 4 p.m.

Kinney also will appear Sunday with fellow cast member Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene on The Walking Dead.

It all unfolds at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, 4500 W Cypress St. in Tampa. Adult tickets are $15 for one day or $25 for both days. Kids 12 and under get in free. For details, visit tampabaycomiccon.com.
