It's all over for another year. The Spider-man suits, Walking Dead outfits and the many and varied monster suits and geek tee-shirts have been packed away but memories of ComicCon linger on.
Hundreds of thousands of obsessive fans are on their way home having flooded the streets of San Diego and packed the conventions halls of the biggest pop culture marketing event of the year.
This year the convention spread into the city's Gaslamp Quarter where pop-up exhibitions and eye-catching campaigns drew fans willing to wait in line for hours to get in.
If ever there was a case of pictures speaking louder than words, ComicCon is it.
