Hopefully over the next few days we'll find out details on Comic Creator Connection, the Blood Drive, the IFF and get a look at the official SDCC 2015 t-shirts. CCI has been rather stingy with information so far, though their post on scammers today was very useful.
In the meantime, we've learned...
Something we already knew: Ash Vs. Evil Dead and Outland will both be at SDCC. The Ash vs Evil Dead panel is Friday in 6A from 6-7 pm; Outlander is Saturday in Ballroom 20 from 4-4:45 pm.
Entertainment Earth is bringing us 2 Penny Dreadful figures: Ethan (with guns) and Vanessa (with Tarot cards). Let's hope a special version of Dorian Gray's portrait is on the way.
And of course we got to look at Stormtrooper this and that.
Conan O'Brien is hosting the Hunger Games: Mockingjay/The Last Witch Hunter panel on Thursday at noon.
As usual, Nickelodean is all about Comic-Con excess. What they have in store for us:
- Thursday will be Throwback Thursday all day long, with appearances from Kel Mitchel ("Kenan & Kel") and Stick Stickly and the Rugrats characters Tommy, Chucky and Angelica. Since they're celebrating the 90s, maybe they'll have action figures from Action League Now! (Probably not though.)
- Their booth will give fans a chance to contribute their voices to an animated show in a recording booth - and they'll be mimicked by their favorite animated Nickelodean characters.
- They're throwing a "Nickelodean's Variety Show featuring Breadwinners Live!" at the Horton on Saturday; tickets are free and you can pick them up in the autograph area of the Sails Pavilion. This is being called a "cartoon celebration" and it will feature a table read with the Breadwinners cast and the world premiere of Pig Goat Banana Cricket and The Loud House.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel is Friday; Saturday is SpongeBob; Sunday is Sanjay and Craig.
Tidbit for Comic-Con of the future: Sandman will be a "grand, spectacular action film" - and Neil Gaiman asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt to ensure Morpheus doesn't punch anyone. The fact that he even had to ask makes me nervous.
Archer will again be on Friday at 5 pm in the Indigo Ballroom. First-timers, Friday in the Indigo Ballroom is traditionally one long animation festival and a lot of people enter and never leave until after Archer. Just something to factor into your plans.
AHS & Scream Queens will be a Hall H Sunday panel at 12:30. Later in the day, we get Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and The Strain at 3 pm. I hope this makes Sunday badge holders less disappointed about Doctor Who being on Thursday. Sunday's Hall H is still a great day without it.
We'll see what tomorrow brings.
