San Diego Comic Con’s Sunday panels are a lot more sparse than the rest of the weekend. Known as “kids day”, most of the programming is aimed at all-ages audiences. The good news is, there’s some fun stuff unrelated to big media that you can check out in what will likely be a calmer capacity than the other three days.
There is no Ballroom 20 on Sunday, and Hall H is limited. If you’re willing to sleep outside overnight, you may want to check out:
- Supernatural: Series stars Jared Padalecki (Friday the 13th ), Jensen Ackles (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Misha Collins (Ringer), and Mark A. Sheppard (Battlestar Galactica), along with executive producer Jeremy Carver (U.S. version of Being Human), return to Hall H to answer questions from the audience about what’s in store for the tenth season of this exciting series, including their upcoming 200th episode! Fans will also be treated to an exclusive video presentation featuring series highlights, as well as a portion of the special features from the upcoming Supernatural: The Complete Ninth Season DVD and Blu-ray release on September 9. The tenth season of Supernatural will premiere this fall in its Tuesday time period at 9/8c on The CW. The series is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television. Sunday July 27, 2014 10:00am – 11:00am Hall H
Otherwise, the smaller rooms are full of panels relating to comics, kid programming, seminars, and discussions. I personally recommend:
- Marvel: Women of Marvel: From Ms. Marvel to Black Widow, from Twitter to tumblr, women in comics has been one of the most talked-about topics in the industry recently. Join the conversation as women from every discipline in the creative process at Marvel discuss what it’s like working as a woman in comics today and what it means for the future of the industry. Panelists include producer and photographerJudy Stephens, Marvel’s The Watcher host Lorraine Cink, Marvel Studios asset manager Alexis Auditore, artist Katie Cook (All-New Marvel NOW! Animal Variants) artist Rachelle Rosenberg (Amazing X-Men), and special guest editor-in-chief Axel Alonso! Sunday July 27, 2014 11:15am – 12:15pm Room 5AB
- Superheroines! Power, Responsibility, and Representation: Moderated by Racebending.com, an intersectional, all-women (social) Justice League of television creators, graphic novelists, artists, and cultural commentators will explore the topic of women in the superhero world. Featured panelists include Marjorie Liu(Astonishing X-Men), Marguerite Bennett (Batman), and Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl). Sunday July 27, 2014 1:30pm – 2:30pm Room 23ABC
- Marvel Comic’ 75th and Daredevil’s 50th:
- 75 years ago the Marvel Universe first came to life with the release of Marvel Comics #1 (soon to become Marvel Mystery Comics), featuring the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner. The company was called Timely then, but as you can see, the word “Marvel” was already part of its comics world. Continuously publishing since 1939, Marvel revolutionized comics in the early 1960s with the help of legends such as Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko. Ever since then, Marvel has proven what remarkable staying power and worldwide appeal these characters have. Daredevil celebrates his 50th anniversary this year, for one! Newer waves of talented artists and writers have all taken the helm at developing these beloved characters’ storylines and influencing their looks and appeal into the 21st century. Moderated by Mark Waid (Daredevil), Comic-Con special guests Dan Slott (writer, Superior Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man) and Joe Quesada (chief creative officer, Marvel Entertainment) will be on hand to discuss these heroes and what keeps them fighting the good fight. Sunday July 27, 2014 1:45pm – 2:45pm Room 6DE
And, as an SDCC tradition, check out:
- Buffy the Musical: Once More With Feeling: Let’s end this show with a bang! The powers that be behind Whedonopolis.com, FandomCharities.org and Fandomopolis.org present an interactive screening of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode Once More with Feeling as Comic-Con’s big closing event! Many say this is the finest, funniest, most ingenious episode ever to come out of the Buffyverse. But remember, the best part of the show is up to you! This episode was made for talkin’-back, that is-and singing and shouting and dancing in the aisles, with or without your dry cleaning! Audience participation: it isn’t just for Rocky Horror and mob riots anymore. Special surprise guest joining the fun. Sunday July 27, 2014 3:30pm – 5:00pm Room 6BCF
