SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Excitement already on Wednesday as Comic-Con International begins handing out badges to the 130,000-plus visitors expected at the San Diego Convention Center.

Superheroes and super-villains are the headliners, with elaborate costumes only part of the fun.  Wednesday night is the preview but Thursday through Sunday it will be a party like no other in the Gaslamp District.

It was sold out almost immediately but you just have to be near downtown to soak up the atmosphere.
