With the eagerly awaited arrival of Comic-Con International this week, San Diego is gleefully celebrating all things comic. And whether or not you were lucky enough to have scored Comic-Con tickets, you can certainly partake in San Diego’s love affair with the genre.

Can’t wait to see what Saturday has in store for us.
After the break, see some photos from a Friday spent at Comic-Con…
