San Diego Comic-Con is officially next month, which means we’ve got tons of San Diego Comic-Con news coming at you, including news of a Legion M offsite (that you can help with), a “Bird Box” exclusive that you weren’t expecting, awesome fashion, and more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- It’s still all about panels, panels, and more panels right now. The Avengers Initiative are once again bringing back their Causeplay – a Fandom with Purpose panel, to the convention. Members of Avengers Initiative – West Coast Avengers and pediatric organizations like Lac+Usc Dept of Peds – Kidz HF along with Magic Wheelchair will discuss how cosplayers and prop builders serve their communities through their love of pop-culture. Hear about their experiences, learn how to join organized groups, learn about some of the organizations that receive help and find out how to get involved in service efforts. You can find more information on their Facebook page.
- Voice actress Mela Lee is also heading to the con, where she’ll have panels and signings — though details are TBA for now.
- Online hangout and gaming spot Gaia Online revealed that they’ll also have a panel at the convention, though details are sparse.
