Publicists are flooding into San Diego, street vendors are selling T-shirts with obscure comic book references, and black-clad teens are lining up to catch a glimpse of their favorite "Twilight" star. Yes, it's Comic-Con season. But apart from the panels and the parties, what really symbolizes Comic-Con is the costumes.
