Discovery Communications Prepares for Comic-Con

Comic-Con Logo

Comic-Con. The event conjures up different images and feelings depending on where your fandom lies. At Discovery Communications, teams are prepping to bring a variety of panels and events to the annual San Diego event this year — from the MythBusters (Comic-Con royalty) to a slew of Science goodness, including a special 10th anniversary Firefly reunion.

While I’ve helped from afar, this year will mark my first year attending and working with Stuff You Should Know‘s Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant while meeting some of our new Revision3 family. There’s so much going on, we thought we’d break it down in bullets in case you are attending or following from afar. Our friends from Science will be blogging daily on the InsSCIder, you can follow @DiscoveryComm, @ScienceChannel, @ScienceAt, @Discovery, @MythBusters, @HubTVNetwork & @Revision3 for updates on Twitter, and we’ll make sure to report back after we return!
