2013 Comic-Con International:
That Runs Wednesday, July 17th thru Sunday July 20th of 2013 in San Diego, California!
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3906 -
I have already mentioned the fact that I will be at the Comic-Con International: San Diego (aka San Diego Comic Con) starting this Wednesday's Preview Night.
I was asked what programs / panels I will be attending. This is my preliminary schedule. As you can see, there is some overlap time-wise, so when I receive my scheduling program with the grids at the Comic-Con, I'll mark down and make my final decisions on which programs / panels I'll be attending.
Below this text is the preliminary schedule...
Whew! That is a schedule that is going to keep me busy!
And that is without me sitting on any panels at this year's Comic-Con!
I'll be blogging about some of these after the Comic-Con is over. Plus posting photos / videos that I take at the con.
For those of you not aware of my history with the San Diego Comic Con... I first set up as a comic book dealer in 1972 at the El Cortez Hotel. Plus I haven't missed a year of attending since the SDCC moved to the San Diego Convention Center in 1991.
I have been on panels at different conventions, including Wonder Con, Long Beach Comic Con, etc.
I'll be at the 2013 Comic-Con International: San Diego with my wife, Tina LoSasso, although we probably will be attending mostly different panels / programs.
Again, check this Blog and my Facebook Fan Page for updates from the comic convention!
