Some examples are panels for hit shows AMC's "The Walking Dead," HBO's "Game of Thrones," and ABC's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
MTV reported yesterday that it will cover a "Teen Wolf" panel featuring actors from the popular cable show. MTV will also set up a "Guy Code" panel featuring live performances and a taping for a TV special called "Guy Code Honors."
In addition, the music television network will hold "MTV Presents: Creator Pitch Live!" a pitch competition between three top comic book creators.
Comic-Con International: San Diego, as the event is officially known, was started in 1970 to raise money for a larger convention, which was eventually attended by Ray Bradbury, Jack Kirby and A.E. van Vogt, according to the Comic-Con official website.
Now, Comic-Con has grown to include over 130,000 attendees and several satellite locations. It brings "comic creators, science fiction and fantasy authors, film and television directors, producers, writers, and creators from all aspects of the popular arts together with their fans for a fun and often times candid discussion of various art forms," the site reads.
More information about attending the convention can be found on the Comic-Con official website.
