SAN DIEGO -- Comic-Con is more than just comics: It's the Super Bowl for nerds, a four-day extravaganza that spills out of the San Diego Convention Center, takes over the city's downtown Gaslamp District, and spreads its tendrils 12 miles east (where I live) and beyond.
In addition to comics, Comic-Con features movies, TV, collectible toys, games, and costumes, with celebrity appearances, panel discussions, screenings of movies and TV shows, and more.
Comic-Con is a highlight of my year, an opportunity to get together with friends I don't see often enough, and enjoy the spectacle produced by more than 100,000 enthusiastic fans.
And I like to take pictures at the con. There are plenty of opportunities.
I recently attended Comic-Con 2014, July 24-27. Let me give you a tour. Climb into on the Game of Thrones pedicab below to get started.
