SDCC 22: Head for the deep end with Adult Swim’s panels

Always a Comic Con mainstay, Adult Swim is back for the reinvigorated San Diego show. Panels include Rick & Morty, Primal, and more.

Lifeguard in attendance

Actually, forget that, there’s probably not gonna be a lifeguard at Adult Swim’s selection of panels. But hey, there isn’t going to be any water (probably) either, so it works out.

And speaking of working out, Adult Swim’s presentation at Comic Con ’22 should work just fine for fans of wild animation. The studio will have the focus on it biggest shows, and even be pulling back the curtain a bit so fans can see what goes into making their favorites.

Then of course, there’s Rick and Morty. Or, to be more precise, there’s The Vindicators. A spinoff of R&M, The Vindicators will be debuting at its panel, with a showing that promises to include both super-heroics and jokes aplenty.

Just a note though, before you start planning, and that’s that none of these panels will be taking place at the convention center. Instead, Adult Swim will be set up at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel. Look for the “Indigo Room” once you’re there, and you’re all set.
