As much as I had an absolute blast at Comic-Con International in San Diego this year, it's a very tiring five days and I'm happy to be home. The convention appears to have been extremely well attended. In addition to the following load of pictures from Sunday at the convention, I've uploaded four quick videos taken on Saturday afternoon from the convention floor. I took these to give you an idea of how jam packed the place was. Each file is an AVI formatted video.
