Another year, another Comic-Con International in San Diego in the books, and as is the CBR way, that means it's time once again for our annual CCI photo parade! Longtime Comic Book Resources readers already know what to expect below, but for those of you joining us for the first time -- and if our traffic numbers are any indication, there's more than a few of you! -- here's how this goes:

CBR founder and head-honcho Jonah Weiland takes a tour of the convention as captured by CBR staff photographer Pinguino Kolb and provides lovingly snarky commentary on the comic book pros, Hollywood celebrities, cosplayers and other CCI mainstays [Editor's Note: sometimes the comments are even funny!]. We're kicking things off today with a look at Wednesday's Preview Night sights as well as the Thursday scene from the convention floor and streets of San Diego. Check back in the days ahead as we'll reconvene here with Friday, Saturday and Sunday's photo parades as well!
