Comic-Con 2010 Saturday Schedule
Holy crap, Saturday is jam-packed. Thursday and Friday are bringing the events as well, but Saturday makes them look like booths at an interior designer convention. We're talking Green Lantern Captain America: The First Avenger Thor, Sucker Punch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Let Me In, Resident Evil Afterlife, Paul, Cowboys & Aliens, and on the TV side, "Futurama," "The Simpsons," "Community," "Family Guy," and "LOST" for some reason. I'm going to have to find a secret nook in Hall H to avoid the madness of standing in line. I'm not saying I'll be inside the baby grand piano, but just don't look there.
Check out the Saturday highlights after the jump.
