The San Diego Comic-Con begins tomorrow and I thought you might be interested in a guide to superhero animation panels and screenings to help plan your weekend.
None of the panels overlap in time but space will be very limited for some of them so you may want to plan carefully.
Also, I can't go (boo hoo!) so any bits of news that you can bring me would be gladly appreciated. Send them to kurtis[at]animatedsuperheroes[dot]com.
