Check out the full schedule on San Diego Comic-Con's website. We listed our picks after the jump.
10-11 a.m., Steampunk Influences on Mainstream Media and Entertainment, Room 23 ABC
Just how popular is steampunk now? This panel discusses the “steampunk aesthetic” that's continued to creep into the mainstream.
11 a.m.- 12 p.m., Avatar: The Last Airbender Fan Gathering, Santa Rosa Room, Marriott Marquis & Marina
Get ready for Saturday afternoon's The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra panel by celebrating the original series. Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of the standout series of the last decade, a show that was as smart as it was action-packed. Cosplay your favorite characters listen to what fans and members of the show's creative team have to say about the series.
11:15-12:30 p.m., DC Comics – The New 52, Room 6DE
It looks like DC is doing several panels regarding this fall's series relaunch. Will this help alleviate the concerns of fans? We have absolutely no idea, but it's probably a good idea to check out one of DC's panels this weekend.
11:45-12:45 p.m., TWIXT: Francis Ford Coppola and Dan Deacon, Hall H
Dan Deacon's work as an electronic artist has earned him scores of fans. Now he's joining forces with Francis Ford Coppola on the forthcoming film TWIXT. They'll be hosting an interactive presentation of the collaboration in the infamous Hall H.
12:15- 1 p.m., Futurama, Ballroom 20
Anime Futurama? Now we're really curious. This panel promises a look at this stylistic mash-up as well as a preview of next season.
1-2 p.m., Community, Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront
For those who love Community, this panel offers Q/A time with the people who make the series a favorite.
3-4 p.m., Cartoon Network: Adventure Time, Room 6A
Pendleton Ward's animated comedy about the magical adventures of a boy and his dog is the source of inspiration for so much of the fan art we see on Tumblr. See for yourself why the show is a hit at this panel.
3-4 p.m., Creator-Owned Comics with Robert Kirkman, Room 7AB
Robert Kirkman has several panels going on in San Diego this year, but this one stands out to us for its informative nature. A long-time proponent of creator-owned comics, Kirkman will be presenting this event with Eric Stephenson of Image Comics.
4-5 p.m., Finally! Nickelodeon: The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra: Exclusive First Look, Room 6BCF
We loved Avatar: The Last Airbender and are really looking forward to the next series from creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino. We're sure that many others have been waiting for this as well.
5:45-7:30 p.m., An Early Evening with Kevin Smith, Hall H
Kevin Smith is back for his annual Comic-Con session.
