Burt Reynolds made his Comic Con convention debut in Philadelphia on Saturday.

And while the 79-year-old actor looked dapper as ever -- matching his rose-colored glasses with a handkerchief in his black velvet blazer -- the Hollywood icon nevertheless appeared a bit frail as he supported himself with a cane while walking around the Wizard World Comic Con.

Reynolds was on hand to speak to the audience during a Q&A session about his second memoir, But Enough About Me, coming out in November. The book will reportedly focus on the people he's worked with throughout his illustrious career.
