Wednesday, July 17, marked the first unofficial day of San Diego Comic-Con International 2013. As with every Comic-Con, we've got a load of photos to share, seeing as how everyone loves pretty pictures.
So here is your look at Preview Night, a slideshow and preview of the week to come, for those of you who can't make it down south for this event. Believe it or not, Wednesday is one of the quieter days of Comic-Con, giving attendees an opportunity to get their shopping and floor perusal done ahead of the pack. Yes, this is a sparse crowd.
Poke a little further into the gallery, and you'll see our shots of the convention and the surrounding Gaslamp Quarter at night. See all those people camped out around the building? Those are likely the truly dedicated waiting for entrance into Hall H tomorrow -- the hall to be in, if you want to see the hottest of the hottest trends. In the past, Hall H has housed Harry Potter, Twilight, Disney, Avengers (and other Marvel shenanigans), Pacific Rim, and... Well, you get the idea.
On the show floor, you'll see the usual staples like Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, NECA, and Weta. Major game companies are also back for another year, with their shops welcoming fans to spend their money on official swag.
Thursday, July 18, is when we'll see the panels begin. Ready? Start your engines.
