As much as San Diego's Comic-Con International is about stuff -- which is to say, comic books, graphic novels, video games, films, toys, collectibles and alcohol -- the world's largest pop culture convention is also about cosplay. It's hard to remember that just a few sho
San Diego's Comic-Con International 2011 is behind us, but we'll always have the memories. Those and the surplus of posts we'll continue to roll out this week.
