Pop Goes The World Heading to San Diego Comic Con 2014

In a couple of weeks, we here at Pop Goes the World and when I mean we, I really mean me, are heading to San Diego Comic Con 2014 for the very first time.

Now I am heading there as a SDCC volunteer but lets go through day by day at what panels that I hope I get to attend if my volunteer schedule allows it. Please note that as a first-time volunteer, I am not able to attend Preview Night.

  • 8 pm Warner Bros. Television & DC Entertainment Present: The Flash, Constantine, Arrow and the World Premiere of Gotham | Cast members and producers from all four shows will make special appearances on stage throughout the night, while Arrow star Stephen Amell will emcee the event.

Sunday, July 27

  • 10:15 am-11:15 am Seasme Street & Pop Culture: 45 years of Spoofs on the “Street”. Room 6A

Since this is my first time at SDCC, I’ve decided to place my focus on attending panels as that is really the whole reason why I want to go. So don’t leave in the comments asking me to get certain exclusives as I am not really interested in any of them with some exceptions (and it is NOT Hasbro) that I hope to get when I visit the Exhibit floor.

There are a lot of offsite events that I want to check out like the Interactive Zone at Petco and stuff at the Gaslamp district and of course the Gotham zipline!

If you are going to San Diego Comic Con 2014 this year, let me know in the comments and perhaps we can meet up.
