CCI: 2011 Photo Parade – Thursday

2011’s Comic-Con International in San Diego is now a memory, but the sights and sounds of the show continue to burn bright in the minds of those who attended the annual SoCal pop culture event. That said, it’s never too early to look back on the frenzy and mayhem that took place at and about San Diego’s world famous convention center, and Comic Book Resources is happy to help you relive, or, if you weren’t able to make it this year, experience vicariously the happy insanity!

We’ve already shared our Preview Night photos with you, and now it’s time for Day One (Thursday) of the show — and what a day it was! From the cast of “Napoleon Dynamite” to Captain America himself, Chris Evans, to comic book royalty and, of course, the ever-popular parade of cosplayers, CBR News continues to bring the experience of Comic-Con International to your computer!

As always, CBR’s Executive Producer Jonah Weiland — AKA The BFD AKA You’re So Not — provides commentary and some good-natured snark to the photos taken by CBR Staff Photographer Pinguino Kolb and Caitlin Holland. And as always, check back later this week for even more CCI photos!

The following photos taken by Caitlin Holland

Alice from “American McGee’s Alice: Madness Returns” Some “Game of Thrones” cosplay – sadly without any beheadings.

Costumed USO women promoting “Captain America: The FIrst Avenger.” I’m suddenly feeling very patriotic. Marvel’s Ares. The Warner Bros. bag over the shoulders really completes the costume.

A trio of Wilfreds “It’s Adventure Time” is what this was labeled by initially. I prefer “It’s therapy time.”

Boba Fett Wolverine – Excellent! Vs for Vendettas

Shellder Pokemon vs… Magikarp! No, I did not know this. I sometimes do what I’m told.

Cowl from “Dark Knight Returns” Two-Face’s burnt costume

Heath Ledger’s Joker outfit Red Robin

Green Ranger, Supergirl and Red Hood – OK, so I guess he’s not Iron Man Mark Blech, but he’s still Blech. Ron English and Morgan Spurlock

Walt Simonson Pikachu gonna eatchu! This is gonna give me nightmares.

Truly, no photo parade is complete without a really great Power Girl, and this is one of those. You will be in my dreams, along with the Captain America Girls and that one that didn’t scare me earlier. Gatchaman’s Jun
