Did you think Twilight went away? It's still with us at Twilight Fan Fiction in 29A at noon.

The stars of Prism are celebrating its 10 anniversary in 28DE at 1.

Ray Bradbury may have left our dimension but he is coming to the big screen. Hear about Live Forever: The Ray Bradbury Odyssey in 25ABC at 1.

Discuss post-theory this and that at Comic Arts Conference 11: The Poster Session with a tribe of academics. 1:30 in 26 AB.
Star Wars Vs. Serenity is in 24ABC at 1:30. Although to my mind, it's not really a "versus" so much as an "and."
More zombie panels: zombie fiction at noon in 23 ABC and zombie video games at 1:30 in 5AB.
Apparently Lost will never fully leave the Con: the co-hosts of the Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack discuss Lost and other TV shows like Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest, Game of Thrones and Justified. 2:00 in 29A.
MAD is in room 9 at 2. 
Bask in the presence of Neil Gaiman, Scott McCloud, Jeff Smith, Denis Kitchen and Paul Levitz as they discuss Will Eisner and the Graphic Novel2:00pm in Room 23ABC
I thought Dracula was getting its own panel, but it might just be a trailer tacked onto the Grimm panel at 2:40 in 6BCF.
*EW's Women Who Kick Ass are Michelle Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany, and Danai Gurira. No Aisha Tyler from Archer or the little girl who plays Arya on GOT? 2:55pm  in Ballroom 20.
Rod Roddenberry fans should report to 25ABC at 3 for "some incredible Roddenberry news and a sneak peek at some of the new and exciting things."
Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly roll out their fall and winter preview at 3:30 in 26AB. This should be a good consolation prize for people who can't get into the Sandman panel.
If you attended Cosplay 101 yesterday, today you can graduate to Cosplay 102 in 29A at 4.
Person in Interest is in 6BCF at 4, followed by Revolution at 4:50.
This could be interesting or nauseating: The Power of the Geek: Superfandom and why Brands, Media and the World at Large Want In. Presented by Bonfire Agency, "the first marketing firm created to help brands establish and deepen connections with the superfan community in relevant, meaningful ways." The copywriter in me just died a little. Oh, and they're donating to the Hero Initiative "for every conventioneer who attends and stays for the duration of the panel." Conventioneers, they said. 4:00 in 28DE.
Honor Superman and his 75 year reign in room 6A at 4:15.

 Is today the best day of the Con? I'm going to say that this year there isn't one.
