San Diego Comic-Con 2017 got underway this week, and it didn't take long for the cosplayers to show their stuff. It's barely been 24 hours and we've already seen some major players pulling all the punches. In our inaugural instalment, we got a shockingly good Jon Snow, a heavily armed Red Ranger, and Wreck-It Ralph's Vanellope in her sweet (literally) ride!
