CCI: Thursday Photo Parade

Going back at least 12 years now, if not longer, CBR has regularly produced daily photo parades from Comic-Con International in San Diego, giving you a feel for the show and, well, playfully mocking the costumed folks in attendance. Over the last few years, as my schedule has grown crazy during Comic-Con, we’ve not run photo parades as regularly, which is shame. When CBR first started covering Comic-Con, we did only two things — live coverage of the Eisners (using dial-up to log on to the net!) and photo parades! It’s part of our history of Comic-Con coverage, and I have been sad to see it fall by the wayside. So, it’s with great excitement that we’re bringing it back this year and we have four separate photo parades filled with great pictures by staff photographer Pinguino Kolb and a handful of obnoxious comments from myself.

So, relax, sit back and enjoy the sights and wonder of the 2010 Comic-Con International in San Diego!

Axel Medellin Stan Lee on Thor’s Throne. What a great shot!

Spidey and some fans join Stan Avatar cosplayers. We expected a lot of them more this year, but either A: big box office doesn’t necessarily translate into big cosplaying, or B: people realized all that blue body make-up is a pain in the ass and looks nasty if you’re a sweat-er.
