Marvel Announces TV, Games and Comics Panels for New York Comic Con
Marvel released its schedule for New York Comic Con 2019 with plenty of panels for True Believers in attendance.
Marvel always puts a focus on comics for NYCC and this year is no different. Returning are the usual Cup O’Joe, Next Big Thing and Fanfare with C.B. Cebulski panels. Taking the main stage on Saturday will be the “X-Men – Dawn of X” panel, which promises a discussion on the new upcoming X titles as well as a few surprises.
Despite a reduced TV presence, Marvel will be bringing Runaways for the third year in a row on Friday of the convention and will screen the Season 3 premiere along with a panel with the cast and crew.
