For the second straight year, Katelyn visited Comic-Con in San Diego. In case you missed it: Wonder Woman had an anniversary, Her Universe had a fashion show, a Costume Palooza, Warner Brothers in Hall H, and Powerful Women!

“Cap…Captain? Big fan. Spider-man.” – Spiderman
Marvel began their big Saturday panel with 4 actors from the upcoming Black Panther. They were not able to stay long as they were headed to the film set.
Once Black Panther left the stage, the lights went out and the room filled with flash lights and smoke. Initially we thought Loki would come out onto the stage, but we were wrong as Doctor Strange came out on the other end of the amazing entrance! They showed us the new trailer for the movie and the cast came on stage and talked. Benedict Cumberbatch mentioned that the upcoming film is different than anything he’s ever done before.
Next up was Spider-Man Homecoming. A few clips were shown from the film before Tom Holland, Zendaya and a few other classmates took the stage. They did not stay long as they were heading to set.
Following Spiderman came Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and a lot of the characters came out in costume. It was amazing to see the makeup detail on each of the characters. Not only were we privy to seeing Chris Pratt and the rest of the cast, but Kurt Russell was also brought on stage. Talk about star power!
“Your mission should you choose to accept it…” is to stay tuned to see what I did on Sunday the final day of Comic-Con. As a spoiler I will mention Disney Kingdoms!

With Sunday being the final day of Comic-Con, I attended a panel for Disney Kingdoms that a good friend of mine was a part of. It was a really cool experience to see a personal friend on a panel!
The panel was titled Disney Kingdoms: Theme Park Stories with Marvel Comics. The panel talked a lot about the Disney Kingdoms comics. A few books they mentioned were Secrets of the Weird from 2011, Tiki Room and Figment. Figment sold out on the first day. There was mention of a third Figment coming next year and two more Big Thunder comics coming soon set to be ‘family friendly’. They sound like a great set of comics that I’m going to have to get my hands on and start reading!
Sunday is one of the shorter days for Comic-Con since it’s the last day. But still a ton of panels and always deals to look for on the floor. Stay tuned for next year panels. As for now… I’m signing off; over and out.
