On Comic-Con’s last day, there will be online-only panels with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Kevin Eastman, Nathan Fillion and more


On the last day of what would have been its 51st year, Comic-Con serves up a mix of familiar names like actor Nathan Fillion and comic book artist Kevin Eastman and his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This year’s edition will happen virtually in what’s being billed as Comic-Con@Home because of COVID-19. All panels will be broadcast at

Sunday, traditionally Comic-Con’s family-centric day, usually kicks off with “Supernatural,” but the TV show’s cast isn’t on the bill this year, though a panel later in the day — “Supernatural Therapy: Fighting Internal Monsters like a Hunter IRL” — has some loose ties to the show, which is currently in its last season on CW.

Here are some highlights with official descriptions courtesy of the folks at Comic-Con. For a complete schedule, go here.

Celebrating 80 Years of Will Eisner’s The Spirit

Will Eisner’s The Spirit was seen weekly by five million newspaper readers in the 1940s and 50s and has been continually in print for the 80 years since. The Spirit was famous for its imaginative storytelling, film noir style, unforgettable characters, and stories. Since then, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Darwyn Cooke, and many others have tried to match Will Eisner’s creativity with their own versions of the The Spirit. Join moderator Danny Fingeroth (Stan Lee: A Marvelous Life; Will Eisner Week Chairman) and panelists Paul Levitz (Brooklyn Blood, Will Eisner: Champion of the Graphic Novel), Denis Kitchen (cartoonist, The Spirit publisher, Will Eisner’s agent and friend), and Dan Schkade (Lavender Jack, The Spirit artist) as they discuss The Spirit as Will Eisner wrote and drew him.
