Comic-Con 2012: ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ Unveil Full Panels!
Comic-Con 2012 just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it? All week long we’ve been hearing bits and pieces of which of our favorite TV shows would be coming to Comic-Con 2012, some more certain than others, but now Comic-Con has landed two big fish in the form of full panel details for AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ and ‘Breaking Bad!’ Oh, and how about a little ‘Comic Book Men‘ thrown in for good measure?
‘The Walking Dead’ has been a tremendous draw at any and all Comic-Cons in the past few years, and 2012 in San Diego will be its biggest year yet. Not only will our favorite ‘Walking Dead’ survivors shamble their way to the big time in Hall H this year, but the full cast, including new additions Danai Gurira and David Morrissey will be in attendance as well! Hosted by ‘Talking Dead‘s Chris Hardwick, ‘The Walking Dead’ will discuss the new season (knock on wood, season 3 trailer?) as well as answer fan questions on Friday, July 13 in Hall H.
Along with ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Breaking Bad’ will be making its very first appearance at the con, and they sure didn’t skimp on the recipe! The entire cast, from Bryan Cranston to Jonathan Banks will be in attendance for the panel on Friday, July 13 in Ballroom 20, where the new season will be previewed, and maybe even shown the July 15 season premiere “Live Free or Die!”
Kevin Smith will also host his own panel on Saturday night, wherein the New Jersey funnyman will also discuss the upcoming season of his AMC reality series ‘Comic Book Men.’ Smith will take the big room in Hall H for the panel, and given its late time of Saturday at 10:00 p.m., you can bet that there won’t be many children around to hear what he has to say!
The full panel details for all three are below:
