AICN COMICS SDCC REPORT: superhero shares some pics from this year's Con!!!

superhero shares some pics from this year’s SDCC!

Hey out there in comic book land! superhero here with some quick shots from the all encompassing San Diego Comic-Con! Sure, you’ve seen reports on the panels, seen the leaked trailers, and heard about the stabbings but what about what’s actually on the floor of the con? What about the everyman view of the floor? Well, here’s some shots I was able to take while milling around with the common people, the everyday Joe and Jane at the con. Trust me, this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg as to what was out there but I figured I’d share a little bit of what I was able to capture…complete with actual comic book style captions!

Well, there you go…a small taste of what Comic-Con holds for the man without a Press Pass! I had a blast at the con and if I met you and you gave me something to check out…rest assured…I’m getting to it. I’m still recovering from the walk-a-thon that is Comic Con! Hope everyone else out there had a blast and I can’t wait to check out next year’s convention!

Discovered as a babe in an abandoned comic book storage box and bitten by a radioactive comic fan when he was a teenager, superhero is actually not-so mild mannered sometime designer & cartoonist, Kristian Horn of Los Angeles, California. He's been an @$$hole for three years. Some of his work can be seen at and check out his blog at

    Cool Pics, Shamefully Bad Captions.

    by Doctor_Strangepork

    Those captions are bad and you should feel bad.

    First to admit embarrassment

    The Iron Man statue

    by Star Hump

    was really cool. You get a real idea what the classic armor would look like in a movie. Looks like they made the right call with the redesigned armor.

  • July 30, 2010, 9:44 a.m. CST

    i love when girls go comics sassy

    by smudgewhat

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    75 percent of those people will have commited suicide before they are 30. Must suck to be so lonely

  • July 30, 2010, 9:49 a.m. CST

    I dunno, I thought Silk Spectre was kinda hot

    by HapaPapa72

    Her pal WW just didn't have the body for the costume. No need to call them pigs. We can at least be civil like a pal of mine, who says things like, "She's no Ford Ranger, but she's not an F-350 either. I'd drive that."

  • Must suck to hate on others that actually leave the basement once in a while.

  • July 30, 2010, 10:09 a.m. CST

    How fucking hot is that Scarlet Witch chick??

    by Righteous Brother

    I love those comic con type super hero babes.

    Scott Pilgrim

    by Bobba Phat

    vs. Comic-Con was a great marketing idea: kudos Universal! I'm in that picture of Scott Pilgrim booth, by the way. Got downtown around 6:45 AM to be first in line for that

  • July 30, 2010, 10:41 a.m. CST

    whoever wrote the captions....

    by Righteous Brother

    would they really prefer that Green Lantern to the movie one? A portly guy in spandex??

  • July 30, 2010, 10:49 a.m. CST

    Aquaman and BP guy...

    by UrbanSamurai

    are the best. Mixing social criticism with superheroes and making me laugh, way to go!! The Wookies made out of a 70s carpet are cool, too. But who dresses up as Bucky? I mean, if a Robin costume looks gay (inevitable) what makes that a Rip-off Robin's costume? And that Iron Man statue is cool, although Tony Stark doesn't seem to be an alcoholic, more of an anorexic...

  • July 30, 2010, 10:59 a.m. CST

    SpyGuy, comic con is the only time they leave the basement

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    they spend the rest of the year playing world of warcraft while their mom makes up their superhero suit. There dad is probabaly an acholholic that hates that his son is a sheltered nerd with no friends and constintly puts him down because he isn't intereested in girls or cars, and their mothers are no help they simply baby them and give into their desires of a suoperhero costume or grocery shoping

  • July 30, 2010, 11 a.m. CST

    I don't s'pose anyone knows where I can get a good deal on Jorda

    by Righteous Brother

    I can't stop thinking about them.

    Those pictures are too damn small

    by SmokingRobot

    Barely better than thumbnails. What, was the internet created last week? Common people, get with the program.

  • July 30, 2010, 11:59 a.m. CST

    Fucking annoying Cosplayers.

    by Stalkeye

    "Look at me, I'm a Superherooo".Save the Costumes for when it really matters, Halloween Parties.That's if any of these dweebs get an invite.

  • July 30, 2010, 12:01 p.m. CST

    by NickKicksAssTomorrow

    i'm gonna echo the first poster's post: "Cool Pics, Shamefully Bad Captions.: Those captions are bad and you should feel bad."

  • July 30, 2010, 12:02 p.m. CST

    i hate to brag

    by smudgewhat

    but i am a comics nerd and i still get mad pussy b/c i'm handsome, fun, and i have a huge wang that makes girls cry with joy. so anybody trying to lump nerds as some form of losers is just projecting their own self-image.

  • July 30, 2010, 12:03 p.m. CST

    The Stabber should have wore OJ Simpson's

    by Stalkeye

    ..Footbal jersey.Now THAT's Cosplay. Even Black nerds (Blerds?)are acting "gansta".<p>/:

  • July 30, 2010, 12:08 p.m. CST

    by HapaPapa72

    Addicted to aches and pains? Or just shite spelling?

  • July 30, 2010, 12:10 p.m. CST

    I saw a Fat chick dressed as Gatchaman..

    by Stalkeye

    ..on that Craig Killborn show and no doubt it adds fuel to the fire when it came to nerd-bashing.What the fuck ever happened to just wearing a t-shirt based on your favorite character/franchise? Jeebsus,shit like this will start a Geek Civil War:Cool geeks vs Anal retent attention whore Cosplayers.<p>Bring it biotch!

  • July 30, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST


    by Redmantle

    Yeah, I get girls too...and I have a good job, and I like comics... though I don't cosplay (personal preference, but I don't begrudge others)... not all nerds live in mom's basement and will die alone. Yep, some folks are projecting.

  • July 30, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST

    Two things I will never do:

    by Inexplicable_Nuclear_Balls

    1)have gay sex<p> 2)dress up as a comic/movie/any character<p> I included #1, because in my mind they're pretty much the same thing. Makes me redundant, but that's okay. Okay.

  • July 30, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    As nerds, we have to defend our public image.

    Thor costume

    by Abominable Snowcone

    smudgewhat: cousins pets & corpses do not count as getting pussy

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    You might have to rethink your statement because the "mad pussy" you get probabaly falls into one of those 3 categories and therefore does not count as being "mad"<P>Although, i'm thinking by "mad pussy" you meant men's assholes, in whioch case, Yes you would get it pretty madly I suppose

  • July 30, 2010, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Redbull, at least these nerds have one thing going...

    by SpyGuy

    I understand 99% of them can use capital letters at the beginning of sentences, differentiate between "There" and "Their," and can spell the words alcoholic, constantly, interested and shopping.

  • July 30, 2010, 12:48 p.m. CST

    I would love to see all the Cosplayers

    by Lang The Cat

    stop a mugging right near SDCC. If that didn't scare the crap out of a mugger what would?

    Aquaman / BP - Best pic.

    Q:So why didn't any of those Cosplayers stop that Guy who stabbed a fellow comic con attendee?<p>A:At the end of the day,they are all posers and pussies.

    by HapaPapa72

    Y'know, the stress of having all that anger and bile and venom inside you could cause your cortisol levels to shoot up and sooner or later may lead to hypertension or even an early heart attack. So keep up the good work.

  • July 30, 2010, 1:20 p.m. CST

    All you dicks bagging on the cosplayers...

    by HelveticaBOLD

    Seriously? To the dicks insulting these people for how nerdy they are: Need I remind you that YOU are spending your time and energy signing up for -- and then commenting on -- the Ain't It Cool News message boards? Pot. Kettle. Black. And for you dicks who are whining about the girls in these pics being "nasty pigs", etc.: I sincerely doubt most of you could even score their phone numbers, so get over yourselves. If you're posting on a geeky message board, the odds are better than not that YOU are a "nasty pig" yourself. REAL girls don't all fit your lame wank fantasies, gentlemen; if you can wrap your heads around that one, you might have a fighting chance at getting laid. Dare to dream, I always say....

    Girl playing Amy looks like a filipina.

    by Dennis_Moore

    They can have big titties because of their part European and Indian genetics.

    Is Batgirl your girlfriend? 'Cause...

    by crankyoldguy

    Lots of shots of her. I saw a few of these people, but many others you didn't snap, including our boy in a few costumes, popular at DC. In fact, the DC booth saw many costumes including a Darkseid (the same guy was Orion last year). If you have more shots, post volume two, please.

  • July 30, 2010, 9:29 p.m. CST

    Meanwhile, this is the true heart of...

    by crankyoldguy

    Comic-Con. Not people having to wait a day to see a short clip or hours to get into a panel. Comic-Con is about real fun and it these folks are havin' it.

  • July 30, 2010, 9:33 p.m. CST

    Stallkeye, YOU'RE the wuss

    by crankyoldguy

    Cancer-fighting "old" me could kick your snively rear. These people are having fun. Go back to dating your hand, boy. I suppose you'd bag on kids dressed up for this, too. What a puss jerk. And no, I don't wear costumes there, but I love to see happy people in 'em.

  • July 30, 2010, 10:19 p.m. CST

    I'm guessing a cosplayer ran over stallkeye's bike...

    by Happyfat73

    ... or maybe stole his Aquaman outfit off the clothesline. Or maybe even slept with his mum.</p> Or perhaps a cosplayer slept with his mum, while wearing his stolen Aquaman outfit and then ran over his bike while beating a hasty retreat.</p> Whatever the case, I think he needs to get over his cosplayer hangup.</p> On another note... cosplay is a funny word.

  • July 30, 2010, 10:35 p.m. CST

    I really like Cosplay

    by Happyfat73

    I think their song, Yellow, is my favourite.

    How bad.......

    by teethgnasher

    How bad can the economy be when SDCC sells out of tickets and people are paying for high ticket statues? Rocketeer and GL Power Battery props sell like hot cakes on the secondary market. Very curious.

  • July 31, 2010, 3:39 a.m. CST

    DOOM Thanks superhero! (And Disses Talkbackers With No Lives!)

    by V. von Doom

    superhero, thanks from those of us who couldn't attend. Affairs of state in Latveria keep DOOM busy.<p>And as for the whiny horde of talkbackers who would never dare wearing costumes in public themselves ... who would never dare criticize others in public to their faces ... who would never invest their precious PS3 time in something like building a costume from scratch ...<p>... get some class, would you? DOOM commands you!

    "why are all the chicks at these things nasty fucking pigs??"
