Topline

San Diego Comic-Con made a relatively modest return as thousands flocked over the weekend to the popular sci-fi and fantasy fan convention for the first in-person gathering in two and a half years.

Key Facts

Attendees wore costumes from Spiderman to Star Wars — in addition to face masks and red wristbands indicating they have been vaccinated against or tested negative for Covid-19.

The three-day Comic-Con: Special Edition eschewed the typical 160,000-strong summer crowds in favor of a more low-key event, “purposefully smaller in scope” and featuring new pandemic guidelines.

Nonetheless, some 40,000 to 50,000 were expected to descend on the convention, according to the Los Angeles Times, and some of the most eye-catching attendees are featured below.
