Panel confirmations have gone out — which means that it’s officially San Diego Comic-Con news season, in our minds. Expect lots of announcements in the next few weeks, leading up to the complete panel line-up two weeks before the convention (though like always, we’ll be compiling all announced panels until that happens). We also have news on exclusives, artists, and so much more.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Kymera Press gave us another look at their new comic, Dragons by the Yard, which is set to debut at SDCC 2017.

  • HG Stylinson revealed that his fan fiction panel for SDCC was approved.

  • The Outlander Podcast announced that they are hosting their first-ever Outlander fan panel at SDCC this year — which should pair nicely with the official Outlander panel, which should also be happening. Join in a discussion about the show with fellow fans, spearheaded by Ginger and Summer at The Outlander Podcast, Mandy of Great Scot Blog, and Sarah Ksiazek of Outlander TV News.

  • Oh, doctor! Local San Diego cartoonist Marie “Doctor” Zhivago announced that she will be hosting her fourth SDCC panel this year, titled “How Cartoonists Influence the Next Generation Z Kids.”

  • Panelonium Confirmus! Or something like that. Heidi Tandy announced her 10th annual Harry Potter Fandom panel this year, “Fantastic Fans and Where to Find Them, along with fellow panelists Justin Zagri, Nick Lang, Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, Adrienne Alwag-Aipia, and David Carpenter.

  • Freelance photographer Pat Loika tweeted that his SDCC 2017 panel has been approved. Stay tuned to this station for more details.

  • Screenwriter Michael Varrati’s “Queer Fear” panel will also be at SDCC 2017.

  • Kyle Maddock tweeted that his podcast, “A Song of Fire and Ice,” will hold its third annual Game of Thrones fan discussion panel at SDCC 2017. Maddock will be joined by fellow panelists Amin Javadi, Ashley Mitruk, Tara Lynne.

  • This one may make you feel a bit old. If you remember watching Batman: The Animated Series every afternoon after school, you’ll be happy to note that Arlen Schumer’s VisuaLecture on its 25th anniversary has been approved.
