San Diego's Comic-Con International 2012 is behind us, but we'll always have the memories. Those and the surplus of posts we'll continue to roll out this week. But mostly the memories, captured in photographic form by ComicsAlliance contributors and friends. The bulk of our experience is what you read and see in the SDCC 2012 articles and videos, but this is a little look behind-the-scenes that we hope you'll enjoy.
