Here is the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 schedule of panels which will be updated as we find out more.
After two years of virtual conventions, San Diego Comic-Con is back! San Diego Comic-Con is taking over the Gaslamp district in San Diego, California once again from July 20-24 (including preview night). Decor has already begun to take over the Gaslamp and attendees are counting down the minutes for Comic-Con’s true return, though the Comic-Con Special Edition was pretty cool from what I heard.
