SAN DIEGO (NBC News) -- Thousands are flocking to San Diego this weekend for Comic-Con.

The event has grown far beyond its comic book namesake.

It's now an extravaganza of all media related to comics, superheroes, science fiction and fantasy.

NBC is promoting its popular shows, "Grimm" and "Revolution", at the convention and previewing new fall shows "Dracula" and "The Blacklist" starring James Spader.

Video games are also making a big splash again this year as well, with gaming companies showing off the latest technology and the hottest new titles.

Behind the crazy costumes, those attending Comic-Con say its really all about connecting.

Some 130,000 people are expected to attend this year.

Comic-Con runs through Sunday.
