Comic-Con International starts Wednesday, July 17, with a preview night that helps attendees get badges early and avoid massive lines the next day.
The biggest treat for fans will be the premiere of two Batman-related TV shows in Ballroom 20. The pilot episodes of “Batwoman,” a CW show featuring Bruce Wayne’s cousin, and “Pennyworth”, an Epix prequel series about the Dark Knight’s butler.
Here are some highlights with official descriptions courtesy of the folks at Comic-Con.

Teaching with Comics
Peter Carlson (Green Dot Public Schools) and Susan Kirtley (Portland State University) lead this hands-on workshop designed for educators looking to integrate comics into classrooms.

Walker (Solid Comix), Chanti Burnette (Animo South Los Angeles High School), and Samantha Diego (UCLA). Workshop materials will be provided and everyone is welcome. San Diego Central Library, 4-6 p.m.
