Entertainment Weekly has released a handful of stills from The Hobbit for their big Comic-Con debut, and on the cover is Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf looking quite stately. Inside the issue is a collection of revealing Hobbit snaps including the dwarves all tucked away in their escape barrels. Plus, look how director Peter Jackson has managed to make sexy Tolkien dwarves — take a look at Aidan Turner as Kili. How odd yet delightful!

The Hobbit will hit theaters on December 14, but before then we expect to see quite a bit from this production at this year's Comic-Con. For more images check out the EW Comi-Con issue.
