Here's our staff recommendations for the must-see panels at Comic-Con 2014.
San Diego Comic-Con
There are just two more days until you (probably) get to watch people who aren't you go to San Diego Comic-Con! These new Guardians of the Galaxy and Agents of SHIELD/Agent Carter crossover posters (behind the cut) are two items to add to the list of things you want your congoing friend to pick up for you, but they won't, because three double-sided, single-spaced pages is pushing it a little, Rebecca, geez.
It's just a dinosaur down the street, don't worry about it.
As satisfying and heartbreaking as Toy Story 3 was for so many of us, we can't say no to spending just a little more time with our favorite characters— particularly those like Kristen Schaal's Trixie (above) whom we only got to meet for a little while. Good thing she's going to have a lot to do in the upcoming ABC Christmas Special, The Toy Story That Time Forgot!
No, I can't bring them all home for you.
LOOK AT ALL THE THINGS!
Suuupeerrrrmaaaaan. *ugly sobbing*
Mondo, of truly excellent poster fame, is branching out into the toy market. And I really hope their toys sell out as quickly as their posters tend to, because otherwise my wallet's going to be taking a major hit.
San Diego Comic-Con Emails Important Information To Ticket Holders, Includes The Words “Anti Harassment Policy”
San Diego Comic-Con sent out an email to attendees yesterday with the subject line "Important information for attending Comic-Con International 2014" and the second item down is "Code of Conduct/Anti Harassment Policy." That's the good news - but there's also some bad news.
There is some thing within us all, and it wants more stuff.
It's no secret we love Penny Dreadful here. And why wouldn't we? Female Sherlockian archetypes with terrible secrets! Shakespeare-quoting Frankenstein monsters! Dense and often subtle Victorian gothic literary references! If you're a fan of the Showtime series and you're heading to San Diego Comic-Con next week, then you need to go check out the Entertainment Earth booth, because there will be some wonderful collectibles will be waiting for you.
Do you get to break out like Bruce in Year One?
Fans eagerly awaiting Gotham will get more than just a look at its first episode at Comic-Con. Fox is also setting up some theme park-type attractions for fans to zipline around the Gotham City skyline and ride around in Gotham City Police cars. I mean, if Batman is still a pre-teen, someone's gotta swing around the city's rooftops, I guess.
So pause is "stun," right?
Boldly go where thousands of other geeks have been before: ThinkGeek's booth at San Diego Comic Con. There, you'll get a chance to play with their newest gizmo that won't even be on sale until November, which is a fully functional universal remote control that is a perfect licensed replica of a phaser.
What's wrong, Ig? Don't you speak parseltongue?
The first poster and a new trailer for the screen adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns is here, and holy hell...I knew that if the movie stayed true to the novel it would be gut-wrenching, but this looks like it might be one of the creepiest tearjerkers ever.
