501st Costuming 101: Dressing to Serve the Empire

Sunday July 21, 2013 11:00am - 12:00pm / Room 29A

If you've never heard of the 501st Legion, then shame on you. These guys are the elite when it comes to "Star Wars" cosplay, and they'll talk all about their craft and give you the information you need to become a member.

PANELISTS: Sam Hornedo, David Biffath, Kevin Weir, Felix Weliver, and Eddie Dennis.

Breaking Bad

Sunday July 21, 2013 11:15am - 12:15pm / Hall H

Yet ANOTHER great show entering its final season! Oh cruel Gods of television, why have you forsaken us in 2013?! The last "Breaking Bad" panel ever (or at least until a significant anniversary passes) will feature pretty much everyone currently involved with the show.

PANELISTS: Creator/Executive Producer Vince Gilligan, cast members Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, R. J. Mitte, and Bob Odenkirk.

George R. R. Martin Discusses the Skin Trade Adaptation

Sunday July 21, 2013 12:00pm - 1:00pm / Room 25ABC

George RR Martin will talk about the new comic book adaptation of his werewolf novella The Skin Trade, as well as other stuff he's done like that little television series based on his books. I think it's called A Song of Throne Games and Red Dragon Weddings or something.

Community: Celebrating the Fans

Sunday July 21, 2013 1:50pm - 2:45pm / Hall H

What a difference a year can make. This time last year, all the talk around "Community" centered on the public firing of show-runner and creator Dan Harmon. This year, after persistent outcry and mixed reviews to the Harmon-less fourth season, he's been hired back as show-runner. Given all the turmoil, controversy, and expectations behind his return, this should be an interesting and lively discussion to say the least.

PANELISTS: Executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna, co-executive producer Andy Bobrow, and cast members Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong.

Spotlight on Neil Gaiman

Sunday July 21, 2013 3:00pm - 4:00pm / Room 6DE

Neil Gaiman is in direct competition with Nerdist's Chris Hardwick for most persistent presence at Comic-Con. In this, his five-hundredth and final panel of the weekend, Neil will take the spotlight all for himself to talk about his new novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane as well as the status of several other projects.

That's just for starters. There are a lot of other panels that piqued our interest, but there's only so much time in the day! In fact, we better wrap this up so we can go get a halfway decent spot in line.

If you don't have your badge, don't worry! Spike will be your eyes and ears for the event all weekend long with All Access Comic-Con, culminating in our one-hour wrap-up on Monday, July 22nd at 11/10c.

In the meantime, check out some of our coverage from last year's Con, where we caught up with the cast of "The Amazing Spider-Man."
