Dang, that Hall H lineup is stacked. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will most likely never get to see a Game of Thrones panel. I'm not ready to give up on Bob's Burgers though. After making it in to the WonderCon panel now I have a taste for the amazing experience that it is and I want more. We'll see how it goes. There's lots of great writing and other creative panels as well as Jim freaking Davis making his first SDCC appearance. That's kind of nuts, right?
