Join the Revolution! Nickelodeon's Legend of Korra -- The cast and crew of Legend of Korra offer an in-depth discussion of Nickelodeon's hottest new series. Executive producer and creator team Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino are joined by co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos as they discuss the creative process that brought the first book in the Korra series to life. You'll also get to hear from your favorite characters as talented voice actors Janet Varney (Korra), David Faustino (Mako), PJ Byrne (Bolin) and Seychelle Gabriel (Asami) will be featured on the panel and renowned voice director Andrea Romano will direct the actors in a live performance from the series. And if you're extra nice, Mike and Bryan may even drop a hint or two about Book 2. So don't miss out! Moderated by Rich Magallanes, senior VP of current series for Nickelodeon.

Avatar the Last Airbender: Beginning and Beyond -- For over 5 years, the organizers of this fan panel have been bringing together both fans and professionals. Moderated by Avatar_Mom, this year's panel will include Bobby Rubio, freelance concept artist DJ Welch (Dark Kenjie), Kevin Coppa (Puppetbenders), Dark Horse artists Gurihiru (Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano), and actor/voice actor Dante Basco, and a few more surprise guests. If that isn't enough, there will be a cosplay contest to showcase the fandom's talented "fabric benders".


ASN's frontpage coverage of this year's comic con will be sparse (I'll be traveling then). However, the ASN Forums always teem with activity whenever something exciting happens at comic con, so feel free to join in and talk about what happens at SDCC.

You can follow SDCC coverage (some of which will be liveblogged) at the following links:

Additionally, after comic con is over we'll bring you an awesome event report written by MoonlitShadow, who will be our special SDCC guestwriter.

We may or may not have mainsite updates during comic con, but in any case, the links above should keep you covered on all the Avatar and Korra news at this year's San Diego Comic Con.
