This year marks the first time in five years that there will be no Twilight buzz at Comic-Con. Since 2008, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson dutifully made the rounds at the nerd convention (except for 2010, when the duo and the other vertex of their onscreen love triangle, Taylor Lautner, couldn’t make it due to scheduling). But from the beginning of Twilight Times, we’ve seen these two together — arm-in-arm for pictures, looking mildly uncomfortable, and playing the whole “are we or aren’t we?” with the public about their coupledom.
At Comic-Con, Robsten never disappointed: There was the year of KStew’s mullet (see slideshow), then Rpatz’s undercut (ditto). Last year’s Comic-Con, of course, was the year they were finally “out” and looking pretty comfy, only days before that whole Kristen Stewart–Rupert Sanders thing came out. But as one of the most buzzed-about couples on- and off-screen, it feels like something’s missing knowing these two will be off doing their very own things elsewhere. So to get your KStew-RPatz fill and a good Twi-buzz going, take a look back at their past appearances at Comic-Con to see what you’ll miss (or won’t, even a tiny bit at all) at this year’s convention.
