I will be following Comic-Con news and posting panel updates here in the near future, including dates and locations for Ghost Whisperer, Legend of the Seeker, The Prisoner and True Blood panels. In addition, unconfirmed panels that are expected to appear include 24, Battlestar Galactica, Bones and Glee.

Lost line

The lines will be long, but as I learned last year…they are well worth the wait. The above photo represents only a fraction of the thousands that gathered for the Lost panel; given that this will be the last year for the series at Comic-Con, I will probably secure my spot in line the night before.

If you’re interested in frequent updates from San Diego next month, I recommend that you follow me on Twitter; I will be sharing details about my experiences and journey, 140 characters at a time.

[Jo is a pop culture writer who loves television and covers Lost extensively. She will be tuning in to The Cleaner, Entourage, Hung, Mad Men, True Blood and Weeds this summer while impatiently awaiting the new slate of shows scheduled for release in the fall.]
