My Comic-Con Schedule

Living in SD has more perks than just beaches and tons of sunshine. It's also host to Comic-Con International, which is fastly becoming not on only the comic event of the year but also the entertainment event of the year. With major movie studios and TV networks premiering new and old shows it's a must for any fan of the genres. Even though they're spreading out a lot of the bigger events over the four days instead of loading up Saturday as they have in the past, I will only be attending Friday and Saturday. Luckily these two days encompass what I'm most interested in seeing:


10:30am-Noon - Warner Bros
I'm pumped to see the first looks at the comic based Whiteout and Watchmen films

2:00pm-3:00pm - Spotlight on Neil Gaiman
One of my favourite writers, famous for Sandman and Neverwhere. Also wrote Mirrormask which is a weird but awesome Alice in Wonderland type film

4:00-5:30 - Vertigo: Looking over the Edge
DC's more "adult" line of comics, featuring Sandman, Fables, 100 Bullets, V for Vendetta, and Y the Last Man


10:45am-12:00pm - The Simpsons
Featuring Matt Groening and other production members on a panel

12:45pm-2:00pm - Heroes
Featuring a clip from the next season and many cast members (Including Hiro)

2:15pm-3:15pm - BattleStar Galactica
Panel on the final season with multiple cast members and producers

3:30pm-4:30pm - Penny-Arcade
One hour Q&A with Tycho and Gabe

4:15pm-5:00m - Marvel Studios
Debuts of the upcoming Hulk and Iron Man films, featuring Edward Norton, Robert Downy Jr, and Liv Tyler

5:30pm-7:00pm - Columbia Screen Gems
Featuring looks and discussion of Superbad, Resident Evil 3, and the awesome looking 30 Days of Night

Whew! These days are going to be packed! Unfortunately I probably won't make it to all of these, due to the lines that form before some of the bigger events, but there should be enough space in there to queue up before the ones I really want to make it to. Now I just need to make sure I pick up enough stuff on the floor to keep me busy while waiting.
