I'm almost embarrassed to admit this but this year was my first time attending Comic Con. While it was very chaotic at times (and always VERY crowded), I had a blast. There was definitely a sense of community and understanding. Nothing screams "judgment-free zone" like an arena full of nerds. I was impressed with the costumes, many of which were quite elaborate. Below are some photos I took. I can't wait to attend next year's Comic Con.
