This day was a little less busy, with fewer panels and a little more wandering in the exhibit hall. IDW/Hasbro tie-in comics, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Batman: Under the Red Hood and other DC animated features.
“Spark of Imagination” panel, The Red vs. Blue Infiltration, Robert Kirkman, and a guest-filled wootstock.

Two fake trailers for existing properties: above, the My Little Pony movie trailer that takes a different tact than you might expect, and below, a Green Lantern trailer thatputs the emerald ring on the capable hands of Nathan Fillon.
