With the films and TV, Marvel won San Diego. Without them, it was an easy win for DC Comics.

They say that comics play second fiddle to films, TV and games at San Diego Comic Con. I've never believed that. From the moment you pick up the catalogue which is comics-specific, to the programming which in amount alone is very comics-biased to the amount of people I see reading comics all over the show, it's all about the comics, comics, comics.

But big media likes to concentrate on the film, film, film. And away from the Con, the comics can be drowned out.

So here's a collection of all our comic-related coverage at San Diego Comic Con.

Okay, there's a few toys and cosplay posts that sneak in there as well. But still…
