All the best cosplay from Comic-Con 2018
Preview night with The Joker
San Diego International Comic-Con kicked off Wednesday with preview night. It was definitely the busiest preview we've seen so far.
Some cosplayers started Comic-Con in full costume, and more impressive cosplay has been popping up as the convention progresses. This gallery first went live on July 19 and will be updated throughout the convention.
