Last year Eric covered the panels from San Diego Comic Con for their at-home event, (see that article Here), but this year Eric asked me to make our leading Comics Round-Up article focusing on comic themed panels from the event. I have to admit, I’m honored, and excited!
San Diego Comic Con’s “@ Home” event is virtual and free, so if you have the time, you should definitely join a couple of panels. They’ll be hosting the panels on their Youtube channel at their scheduled times.
See what panels I think will give you the most bang for your buck!
