'Batman: Arkham Knight' Cape/Cowl/Create Exhibition Photos
'Batman: Arkham Knight' Cape/Cowl/Create Exhibition Photos
What if Batman had a fur-lined cape? Or had Scribblenauts on his cowl? Or was Rorschach? All those questions and more were answered at the Cape/Cowl/Create Exhibition hosted by DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Vice magazine at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The whole thing was a promotion for the new Batman: Arkham Knight game, and used the cape and cowl designs from the game as a basis for the artwork. The concept resulted in some pretty cool stuff, and the opulence of the event was a vivid expression of just how big the Arkham games have become -- often, installations like these are reserved for big tech franchise announcements.

Among the colorful cosplay, massive booths, interactive displays and walls of merchandise at Comic-Con International in San Diego — colloquially known as SDCC — remains the most important component of the show: comic book creators. ComicsAlliance photographer and Loikiamania podcast host Pat Loika hit the show floor to catch the men and women who tell our favorite stories in sequential art and captured the enthusiasm that comes from fans getting to meet their favorite storytellers at one of the biggest conventions of the year.

Comic-Con Cosplay Spotlight: Most Depressed Homer Simpson Ever
Comic-Con Cosplay Spotlight: Most Depressed Homer Simpson Ever
Spotted by ComicsAlliance photographer Pat Loika walking away from the San Diego Convention Center on Thursday was doubtlessly the most forlorn Homer Simpson we've ever seen in 3D space (unless you count that whole 3D episode where Homer was, like, cripplingly depressed at the end). Our speculation is that this cosplay takes place after the events of 1995's "Homer the Great," when it turned out that Homer was heir to the throne of a secret society that rules the world... until it turned out he wasn't, and he was cast out for being a false idol as well as general jackassery. Sorry, spoilers.
