SDCC 2021: Titan Comics brings Blade Runner, Horizon Hero Dawn and more

Exclusives? Panels? Titan Comics has revealed its upcoming slate of both for Comic-Con@Home, and it all starts on the 24th of July.

Still home, still Comic Con

A pretty nice slate of exclusives and panel presentations is in store for fans of Titan Comics’ books later this month. The publisher will be hitting Comic-Con@Home with both, including panels for Blade Runner and Doctor Who.

Starting things off with that, Titan’s spread of panels will look a little something like this:

About those exclusives…

So the online panels are easy to take part in, but the exclusive books that Titan will be offerings aren’t all that hard to get either. That’s to say, as long as they don’t sell out.

All you need do to get a copy of whichever one you like is to make your way over to either AnotherUniverse.co (in the US and Canada) or to ForbiddenPlanet.com/sdcc2021/ (in the UK and Europe). Both online shops will be stocking pre-orders for the pair of exclusives that Titan will be offering, as of July 23rd.

And while we’re at it, those would be:
