A fan can follow San Diego Comic-Con in amazing detail simply by tracking the Twitter traffic. Wherever you are, the action is just a #SDCC hashtag away.

So with the circus having left town and the city sleeping off the geek binge, here is Comic-Con 2011 as recapped rapidly, from the five-day fest where the characters — unlike on Twitter — were countless:

10. “I have arrived @Comic_Con. The air is thick with the smell of Cheetos and celibacy.”

@Conan O’Brien ..
