People often ask me, "Hey man, what's Comic Con really like? Is it like that episode of 'Entourage'? Huh?" I can only answer back thusly:

Comic Con is one big steaming pile of nerd, mixed liberally with hollywood big shots, celebrities, comic fans, comic pros, girls in costumes, guys in costumes, costumes in costumes, more nerds, bodybuilders, hot chicks, mothers & fathers, sisters & brothers, old folks, little kids, and dashingly handsome webmasters of toy sites. All crammed into a giant convention center that is hard to walk around in.

But don't take my word for it: see for yourself below! And then go read a more eloquent account than mine by Peter Sanderson.
