I know it's really called Comic-Con International but I'm sticking with SDCC because it's more descriptive and less fancy. 

Corinna and I will only be attending the con on Saturday so we'll be busy.

Here are the panels I'll be participating in: 

SATURDAY - 10:00-11:00 Planet of the Apes in Comics: Past, Present, and Future— Planet of the Apes has come back to comics in a big way thanks to BOOM! Studios! Tom Mason (former editor of Malibu’s Planet of the Apes) and current Planet of the Apes editor Dafna Pleban talk with writers Daryl Gregory, Gabriel Hardman, and Corinna Bechko about their critically acclaimed series. Learn what’s next for Planet of the Apes, as well as secrets behind the past of this comic franchise. Room 9

I'll also be sitting in on this panel talking about how films influence comics, particularl
Eisenstein's 'Alexander Nevsky' (I know it's been a big influence on me):

SATURDAY - 4:00-5:00 Heroic Visions: Sergei Eisenstein's Nevsky from Screen to Panel— Pioneering filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein developed many storytelling techniques that revolutionized film and have influenced comics. The new graphic novel by Ben McCool and Mario Guevara based on his classic motion picture Alexander Nevsky not only presents a timeless story of heroic deeds but highlights the way film and comics interact and influence one another. Writer Ben McCool (ChokerNevskyand some very special guests explore visual storytelling through the ages. Hosted by Russ Films.Room 23ABC
