I didn't even go to Comic-Con, so I can only imagine the flood of information coming out of it is even more intense in person. But even from afar, the tidal wave of new content was overwhelming. It got to the point where I decided I was going to give the con a few days rest after it ended and then attempt to make sense of everything that came out of it. This is that attempt. I've wrangled together every post Cinematical got out of this year's convention and have grouped them together, in mostly chronological order, by project, for easy digestion.
