More from Comic-Con 2011

Last night was the end of this year's Comic-Con International convention in San Diego. The Physics Central team handed out thousands of comic books to comic book fans from around the world. Here are a few pictures taken over the last few days of Comic-Con.

[The Physics Central team was also giving out LED pins to Spectra fans.]

[Occasionally, comic book heroes came by the Physics Central booth and we snagged them for photos. Here, we're waiting for Batman to finish an important phone call before our photo op.]

[Maybe Batman was so busy because he was talking to the Penguin...]

[After an exhausting five days of handing out at least a ton of free comics, the Physics Central team piled on top and in front of the last few comics being shipped back home for a final Comic-Con 2011 photo.]
