Want even more Marvel Comics stuff out of this year’s Comic Con? Well, you got it. They’ve announced even more happenings.
No, your eyes do not deceive you. We told you about Marvel Comics’ slate of panels about two weeks ago, but these are additional presentations. Why? It’s a part of the publisher’s “New Media” initiative. What is that? It’s more or less a series of panels from their online shows that talk about the Marvel stable of comics, and some cool in-booth happenings .
Seems like most of these’ll be live-streamed too. So if you’re not at the Con this week, you can still catch ’em. There’ll be copious amounts of streaming from Marvel’s booth on the show floor every day, starting at 11am pacific tomorrow (July 19th). Expect to hear from hosts like Ryan Penagos, Lorraine Cink, Langston Belton, Angélique Roché, Jamie Frevele, Justin Warner, and Josh Saleh.
And here’s what’s on tap:
