Comic-Con 2009 photos: Iron Man 2, Zombieland, and geeks in costumes

Even though TechRepublic editors didn't make it to Comic-Con 2009, we compiled a gallery of great photos from the event, thanks to some of our CBS Interactive colleagues. Our gallery features geeks in costumes, celebrities, collectibles, and, of course, zombies.

Geeks aren't going to let the recession stop their fun. The proof: Comic-Con 2009 held last week in San Diego, CA, was reportedly attended by 125,000 people.

Even though none of the TechRepublic editors made it to Comic-Con 2009 (and, yes, I did request to make the trip), we were able to compile a gallery of great photos, thanks to our CBS Interactive colleagues at GameSpot and MovieTome. Our Comic-Con 2009 photo gallery features geeks in costumes, celebrities, collectibles, and, of course, zombies.

According to MovieTome, the most popular movies at Comic-Con 2009 were:

  1. Iron Man 2
  2. District 9
  3. The Hobbit
  4. Alice in Wonderland
  5. 2012
  6. Zombieland

For a snapshot of some of the highlights from the event, read MovieTome editor Kurt Wolff's rundown of the best of Comic-Con 2009, which includes nods to Peter Jackson, James Cameron, and Hayao Miyazaki to name a few.

Check out the Comic-Con 2009 photo gallery, and please impress us once again with your geek expertise by helping us identify some of the characters.
