San Diego Comic Con is massive, with panels running almost 24/7 over the course of the 4 day convention, 5 if you include preview night. So to help out our fans/friends, we have created our list of stand out panels to attend.
Things we are not going to talk about however is anything in Hall H, because we want you to have fun and do things at the convention, not simply stand in line for two days.
Further I would like to remind attendees that San Diego Comic Con is not just an amazing place to network, but to learn as well. Many industry professional host helpful panels on how to break into the industry, basics to film, comics, and even legal advice when you get started. We however will not be covering those, as that would be a very long post.
