San Diego Comic-Con is fast approaching and the programming line-up is starting to roll out, making me intensely jealous of everyone that’s going as I sit out here on the East Coast. Boom! Studios has announced its panel programming and schedules for the convention from July 18th – 22nd at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. You’ll be able to find Boom!
