While it might seem like nothing is coming to Comic-Con this year, with the news that HBO is joining Marvel Studios and Starz in the list of networks and studios skipping the convention – fear not. History is here to save the day.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that History will be bringing their upcoming sci-fi series Blue Book to Comic-Con this year. The series, which is based on the real-life Project Blue Book, revolves around secret U.S. Air Force Investigations into supposed UFO encounters and unexplained phenomenon, as undertaken by astrophysicist Josef Allen Hynek in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The series stars Game of Thrones‘ Aidan Gillen, as well as Laura Mennell, Michael Harney, Ksenia Solo, and Michael Malarkey. Expect a panel for them – and, History typically does something cool outside the convention center for their series as well. Perhaps this year, instead of knights guarding our bags in the Gaslamp, we’ll get little green men.
