Light cycles, wizards, vampires and superheroes made for another colorful Comic-Con.

San Diego's annual pop-culture convention wrapped up Sunday after four days of comic books, costumes, celebrity appearances and TV and movie previews.

A new take on "Tron," the latest "Harry Potter" film, HBO's "True Blood" and Marvel's "The Avengers" were among the highlights of the 41st annual festival.

More than 120,000 fans attended the sold-out event at the San Diego Convention Center. They came for the toys and collectibles, the people-watching and a chance to see early footage from anticipated films.

"I was just focusing on 'Tron,'" said Michael Faustino, 28, who has been coming to Comic-Con since 2004. He also picked up some Tron and G.I. Joe toys.
