What You Missed at Comic-Con@Home 2020
2020 has been an unusual year all around. While San Diego Comic-Con is typically one of our most-anticipated annual events to attend in-person, the convention went all digital this year—making its incredible panels freely available to anyone with an internet connection.
This also means that, unlike with the typical con, every event has been preserved on YouTube for posterity. If you missed the main event over the weekend, it's certainly not too late to dig in and catch up on everything you missed.
If you're not sure where to start, we've got you covered. Keep scrolling to find out more and watch our very favorite panels from Comic-Con@Home.
A Look Inside ' Marvel's 616′ on Disney+
We're in on pretty much anything pertaining to Marvel, and Marvel's 616 is no exception. It's a series of upcoming documentaries that explore every aspect of the Marvel Universe, from the filmmaking and storytelling themselves to how the franchise's heroes impact culture and fandom. Hosted by the brilliant Angélique Roché, it speaks with the creators and filmmakers of these documentaries to tease what we have in store.
With its quirky yet relatable characters and the most loving animated family on TV, it's easy to see why Bob's Burgers has become an Emmy-winning fan-favorite. It helps that the cast is also really, really, really funny. Sure, you'll get some insights into the future of the show with this panel, but you should mostly watch it for its hilarious comedic talents (and luminary voice actors) H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz and Larry Murphy.
Careers in Geek Fashion
In recent years, style has become an important way for people to express and share their fandom. Moderated by Geekfold writer and founder Lisa Granshaw, this panel brings together industry experts Jeff Trexler, Rosa Menendez, Don Richard and Dan Madsen to discuss the meeting place between fandom, geek culture and fashion, and the huge markets that have been born out of that love.
Cartoon Network Studios First Look
We've always loved Cartoon Network, but in recent years, they've been the source of truly game-changing animation for all ages, and it's always exciting to see what they have coming up next. This quick look, hosting by Craig of the Creek voice actors Philip Solomon and Lucia Cunningham,
makes some exciting new announcements and shows exclusive clips from Ben 10 vs. The Universe: The Movie, Victor and Valentino, We Bare Bears The Movie and more.
Continuing the Avatar Legacy
Even years after its conclusion, Avatar: The Last Airbender remains a cultural touchstone for those who grew up watching the series. This panel consists of series creator Michael DiMartino as well as Avatar comic and novel writers Faith Erin Hicks, Gene Luen Yang and F.C. Yee to discuss the franchise's legacy—and make the announcement that Legend of Korra, the sequel to the series, will also be on Netflix very soon.
HBO Max and Cartoon Network Studios: Adventure Time: Distant Lands
Adventure Time is one of the most enduring animated classics of the last decade, and we are so thrilled to see that the story will continue with the Adventure Time: Distant Lands specials. This panel primarily dives into the BMO special and features animator Niki Yang, who also voices the beloved character. Plus, it also includes a first look at the second special, Obsidian.
HBO Max: The Cartoon Network Studios Collection
This half-hour panel highlights three incredible new series—Summer Camp Island, Tig n' Seek and The Fungies—that HBO Max and Cartoon Network have created in collaboration with each other. Each one goes in-depth with the creators, giving brief glimpses into the shows, with insights on how they came to be. They boast some seriously gorgeous animation, and we can't wait to check them out.
The New Mutants
Maybe we'll soon be able to stop joking that The New Mutants will never get released? We've been anticipating this X-Men horror film for years, now, and this half-hour panel with stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga makes us feel like it'll be worth the wait.
Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe
The world hasn't been quite the same ever since the conclusion of Phineas and Ferb on the Disney Channel, and we are so happy to see that the gang will be returning soon in a Disney+ Original Movie. This panel features creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, director Bob Bowen and, of course, stars Ashley Tisdale, Vincent Martella, Maulik Pancholy and Dee Bradley Baker as they dig in to what we can expect when it releases next month.
Sailor Moon: The Power of Female Friendship
Fans of Sailor Moon know that the franchise is about so much more than magical girls who fight the forces of evil. At its core, Sailor Moon has always been about friendship, and even in real life, from the manga to anime, video games, merch and so much more, it has a wonderful way of bringing people together. This panel is all about how Sailor Moon has become an icon for both women and the LGBT community at large, and the incredible connective power of the Sailor Moon franchise.
SYFY: Wynonna Earp
We are so happy that Syfy's Wynonna Earp has been getting a lot of well-deserved attention, because it's unlike anything else on TV. The series combines supernatural horror elements with a Western, plus a butt-kicking heroine in the form of cowboy Wyatt Earp's great-great-granddaughter, to delight us with every new episode it airs. This panel features show runner Emily Andras plus cast members Melanie Scrofano, Tim Rozon, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Katherine Barrell and Varun Saranga, as they discuss the highly anticipated fourth season.
Turning Fandoms Into Movements for Good
If we've learned anything from being parts of different fandoms, it's that hardcore fans know how to channel their passion in all kinds of creative directions, and that include awesome charity work. This unique panel explores a number of fan-run charity groups, including California Browncoats , Fandom Charities, Browncoat Auxiliary Depression & Anxiety Support System and Castiel's Angels, and how its members do amazing things in the name of fandom.

YA Fantasy and the Power of Storytelling
Some people think that just because YA novels were made for young people means they're not important, or real literature. Those people are so wrong, and this wonderful panel is proof. Featuring Nightmare-Verse series writer L.L. McKinney, We Hunt the Flame writer Hafsah Faizal, Age of Darkness series author Katy Rose Pool and Skybound Saga series author Alex London, it dives into the importance of these books and the commentary they provide, as well as their ability to provide much-needed escapism.
