Breaking Down the Friday San Diego Comic-Con 2024 Schedule – Major Rooms by Day

 If you’re anything like us, you probably already have your Comic-Con schedule started (and if you don’t — why not?!). Especially with panels, though, it’s helpful to know what else is in the panel room, as sure, your panel might be a walk-in by itself — but what if something major is right after it? And remember at SDCC the rooms are not cleared after each panel. 

You can find the Thursday schedule broken down here.
