Love it or leave it, you have to admit that the San Diego Comic Con brings out the ten year old kid in all of the attendees (including, this year, many entertainment types, who ran around the floor pleading, "I want it. I WANT IT.") Here are some pictures of life in and around last weekend's con, some great displays, awesome costumes, even a couple of panels. This year there were significantly fewer slave Leas, the female storm trooper was nowhere to be seen and there were a number of pirates and people wearing (inexplicably) their Ren Faire costumes. I guess the ten year old takes all forms!

So without further ado, here, without the five hour drive down (because of a truck accident that closed the five down in Camp Pendleton), the lines, the crowds and the bad food, is Comic Con.
