I can’t wait to get back to in-person conventions with Comic Con November 26-28! It’s sure to be a different experience than in years past and certainly different from the At Home versions the past two summers. Here’s a guide to everything Star Wars, Disney, and Marvel so you can maximize your experience!

Below is a list of great panels covering topics we love here at The Skywalking Network. More details about the panelists, date, time, etc if you follow the link. Let us know in the comments if you come across any others in the programming schedule! I’ll be there all three days so check back here and on our social media for pictures and posts.

Hopefully there will be fun photo opportunities like in past years.

The Comic Con Museum is finally opening!

And don’t forget about the Comic Con Museum, which is having its soft opening! There are some great exhibits, including Cardboard Superheroes which comes with the opportunity to make life-sized versions of Captain America and Wonder Woman’s shields.

There’s also movies being shown during Comic Con, including the Disney classic Alice in Wonderland, Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., Muppet’s Wizard of Oz, and the nightmare-inducing (if you’re a child of the 80s like me) Return to Oz. These can all be watched virtually as well using Scener/Disney+!

The exhibit hall still covers A-G and includes staples like Funko and Artist’s Alley. Check out the map and exhibitor list for some great content and exclusives. There’s also a search function to help support BiPOC and LGBTQ businesses!

And if you’re interested in more “science of…” and other academic panels, I put together a list of those on my website, check it out!

As you can see, there’s a lot of great offerings during Comic Con Special Edition. Hope to see you in San Diego!
