Let's be honest. Every year, Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) continues to grow – and what was once the pantheon for all things comics has become the place to be if you're a film or television series looking to make traction with an eager geek fanbase looking to rest their eyeballs on something worthy. Then there are the "con veterans," returning once again to show their love and appreciation for the fan support – or in some isntances, giving attendees a final chance to say goodbye. With a Bleeding Cool team doing it's very best to cover as much of SDCC as possible for you, we're giving you a chance to join-in on our coverage live. Over the next four days, we'll be hosting live-blogs for a number of the buzz-worth panels at play: from Terminator: Dark Fate and the Walking Dead universe to The Witcher, Star Trek series, Marvel Studios, and more. Our live-blog coverage goes live on our website approximately 5-10 minutes before the start of each panel – here's how the calendar looks:
