[SDCC] A LEGO Nerd’s Choice of Panels: Saturday Programming

Best.-Saturday.-Ever.

Once again I am here to offer a few select panels for Saturday at the San Diego Comic Con. There’s a TON of stuff going on but I’ve carefully curated the selection below based on what I want to see I think you the LEGO fan would be interested in seeing.

Let’s take a look, shall we?

[SDCC] BrickJournal Panel and LEGO Batman Comic Info

Yes, more and more LEGO fun to check out at SDCC keeps popping up. Joe Meno will be hosting a panel for BrickJournal Magazine on July 26th fro 5 to 6pm. If you’re a fan of the publication, you’ll want to take the opportunity to check out what’s going on behind the scenes and pick Joe’s brain if you’re down with the Q’s and the A’s. I’ve only me Joe once at the 2013 Toy Fair in New York, but there was work to be done and many, many people to meet, so there was no picking of brains that day.

Also on the 26th at the LEGO booth there will be an exclusive LEGO Batman comic giveaway and signing. Artist Paul Lee and writer Rachel Lareau will be on hand to autograph this limited comic (pictured above) containing new original art and Club LEGO comics collected together for the first time. Only hitch… it’ll be between 5 & 6pm, so choose wisely.
