From the moment Tom Welling first stepped onstage for the Smallville panel at Comic-Con, I started hunting down and saving pics from this rare public appearance. What I found was a whole lot of pretty, and I thought I'd put together a little picspam to share my favorites here. After much deliberation, I've managed to limit myself to just 60 pics (down from 180+).
I've done my best to give proper credit for these. The file name of each pic includes the name of the source for it (to the best of my knowledge), but please let me know if you think I've credited anything incorrectly. There are a few pics whose source remains a mystery to me. Most of you have probably seen all of these, but maybe you'll find one or two that are new to you. Some have been cropped from the originals.
This first batch, featuring Tom in hi res, is courtesy of OSCK, with my thanks. Photos by Chelsea Lauren (except for the last one?). Click for even BIGGER.
These gorgeous pics are all courtesy of jr24tw. Thank you, Jana!
This very special batch of pics was taken by jeannev, who was lucky enough to attend and see Tom in person. Thanks so much for sharing, Val!
The rest of these come from a variety of sources, including caseyfrass, chuff.dogg, E!Online, Genevieve719, Joits, Just Jared, kayay5, LRG410, Natasha Baucas, Smallville Buzz, stephytoast, and thewb.com.

And I still love this one, the first pic I snagged, which I capped from one of the first vids to hit YouTube. Too cute!
And there you have what I consider to be the best Tommy pics I've seen from Comic-Con 2009. I want to say thank you to everyone out there who attended and shared their photos and vids with us! You made me feel like I was right there with you. And the biggest thank you of all, of course, goes out to Tom himself, for making the trip to San Diego this year! ♥
