HBO's SDCC 2019 Plans Include "Game of Thrones," "Watchmen," "Westworld" and "His Dark Materials"

We told you this year's San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) was pretty much going to be setting up shop on the "Television" side of the pop culture landscape, and HBO is looking to keep it that way. With less than a month to go before one of the largest pop culture conventions in the world descends upon Ron Burgundy's backyard, the cable giant is announcing panels and autograph signing sessions for Game of Thrones (making its con curtain call), Westworld, and the upcoming His Dark Materials. While it won't have a panel scheduled, Damon Lindelof's "remix" of Alan Moore and David Gibbons celebrated comic books series Watchmen will also have a major presence with an in-world experience opportunity in the Gaslamp Quarter.
