San Diego Comic Con 2010 via satellite

The Super Bowl of comic book shows is going down in San Diego this weekend and we’re missing it. Being on the East Coast, we here at MLD normally stick to local events. Luckily there are a bunch of ways to keep tabs on all of the news and announcements coming out of this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

Comic Book Resources has excellent coverage including live updates from panels and presentations. Newsarama is another great option for staying informed and they’ve provided what has been the highlight for me so far from yesterday’s X-Men panel:

The show has already brought us some other fun stuff including new information on TRON: Legacy, True Blood, and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. Saturday’s panels include a lot of comic book/movie topics like Scott Pilgrim, Green Lantern and Marvel’s upcoming Avengers film. It all begins today at 1PM EDT.


TRON comes to the iPhone

Imagine my surprise and delight when an advertisement in the iPhone’s Words game took me to this new TRON app! Released earlier this week, it features links to trailers for TRON: Legacy and the TRON: Evolution video game, as well as information on the ComiTRON panel at the San Diego Comic Con this week. The main attraction is a TRON Tanks game that has 15 levels and has been a lot of fun in the time I’ve spent playing it. The best part is it’s all free.

I’m a big fan of the original movie and I’m really looking forward to the sequel coming this December. Check this out if you’re already a fan or just want to learn more about the world of TRON.
