Dark Horse Comics’ digital Comic Con panels start up tomorrow, with looks at the brand’s biggest stars, a focus on Avatar, and even a drawing class.
Stop, panel time
Are you looking to dig into some virtual Comic Con goodness this weekend? Well then you’re in luck, as Dark Horse Comics will have you covered with a few panel presentations.
This won’t be your usual slate of shows from the publisher though, as the list has been paired down a bit. That’s likely due to the at-home nature of Comic Con here in 2020, the year from hell.
Still, there’s some good stuff to check out, including a panel that might have you digging out your art supplies.
