San Diego is overflowing with comic fans as Comic-Con begins today: Tickets have sold out. Our new Hero Complex blog is in the door, keeping up on the movie previews and author signings and conference ephemera, including which branded bag is the hot property on the floor this year.
And of course there are photographers ready to take photos of all the Slave Leias and other costumed fans. Christa Miesner, above, dressed as another Star Wars character — Twi'Lek — at Comic-Con 2007.
