Celebrating the future of the Dynamite brand, as well as the tremendous history of the Spirit, Dynamite Comics has a pair of panels ready to go for Comic Con 2015.
If you’re a Spirit fan, then you don’t want to miss out on the Spirit 75th Anniversary Panel, taking place this Friday at the biggest Con of the year in San Diego, CA.
