In case you didn’t know, we are having a meeting next week. By “we” I mean those inexorably drawn to all things geektabulous and by “meeting” I mean the San Diego Comic-Con. In case you didn’t know, part 2: Entertainment Weekly is stepping up to the plate in a big way this year. Not only do we have our first-ever Comic-Con preview issue on stands now, not only will we be live-blogging the bejeezus out of the Con (right here on PopWatch!), but we’re hosting three (count ’em, three!) panels at the show. The “Entertainment Weekly Presents: The Visionaries” series. (Spiffy, right?)
The first, on Thursday, is for comic creators — and we’ve got Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, Matt Fraction, Mike Mignola, Robert Kirkman, Colleen Doran, and John Cassaday on that one. The second, on Friday, is for TV showrunners — featuring Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, Josh Schwartz, Bryan Fuller, and Josh Friedman.
The final panel… well, that’s my cross to bear. And I need your help! Grab a buddy and follow me over the jump to find out how you can render aid.

Okay, so the last panel is for filmmakers. We’ve got Kevin Smith, Zack Snyder, Judd Apatow, and Frank Miller. And I’m moderating it. In Hall Frakking H. (For those who’ve never been, Hall H is the biggest conference room in the convention center. It holds something like 425,000 people. Yes, I’m exaggerating, but it’s massive.) ((My track record for this sort of thing is 1-1. And I only lost the one because I called Lucy Lawless a man.)) (((Yes, I am a tool.)))
As for how you can help: Give me questions. I’m gonna sift through whatever shows up in the comments and ask the two best questions to this awesome assemblage of filmmaking wizardry. And I’ll read out the name of the PopWatchers who submitted the “winning” questions. So make with it. Do my job for me!
