Saturday, here at the Con, you'd think it was the Fourth of July. Sub out the fireworks for star-studded guest appearances and hotly anticipated panel reveals, and you have a day that's more than worth its weight in fiery nerd-patriotism.
For us, we're kicking the day off with our third and final Comic-Con live show, co-hosted by none other than "Lost" creator and "Prometheus" writer Damon Lindelof. He'll be on hand as we roll out more of our interviews from the con, including discussions with the casts of "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead" and much more.

Joss Whedon has been a cultural icon for numerous years, and his recent success with "The Avengers" and "The Cabin in the Woods" has put him higher on the A-list of filmmakers working today in Hollywood. In addition to his hugely popular reunion with the cast of his cult series "Firefly," Whedon took the stage for a second time at Ballroom 20 for his annual Q&A panel with his massive base of fanboys and girls alike. As an evolving Whedon fan myself, here are 10 things I learned at his panel.
1. In his classic form of sarcastic humor, Whedon kicked off the Q&A by asking himself "What's it like to work with Fox?" Of course any die-hard Whedon fan would understand that joke.
2. He announced that there will be a third run for the "Serenity" comic book series.
On top of their announcement of the "Walking Dead" season premiere date, AMC have released a full-length trailer for the upcoming batch of episodes. The old guard of Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and the rest are all very present, plowing their way forward through the prison, what will hopefully become their new home.
But we also see Andrea on her own with Michonne, the sword-wielding warrior briefly glimpsed in the season two finale, as the two of them find their way to Woodbury, the small community owned and operated by the tyrannical Governor. Saying any more would be saying too much. Click below to check out the trailer for yourself.
"The Walking Dead" panel has just wound to a close at San Diego Comic-Con, and it's brought some of the best news we could have hoped from the show: an official return date.
During the panel, showrunner Glen Mazzara announced that "The Walking Dead" will be back on October 14. That's just in time for Halloween, also known as a zombie's favorite holiday. Let's start taking bets now on how many people dress up as Michonne or The Governor this year.
Karl Urban has seen Sylvester Stallone's version of "Judge Dredd." He just thinks that his version is much better.
The star of "Dredd" stopped by the MTV News offices while he was promoting the movie at Comic-Con and didn't have any qualms about comparing his film's take on the cult British comic to the one that came before. We've heard good things from the "Dredd" screening that took place a couple nights ago, and Urban said his "Dredd" has got nothing to worry about.
"I saw [Stallone's] movie when it came out in '94. Tonally, these films couldn't be more different," he said. "I think it's a difference of if you like your characters wearing lycra and gold cod pieces, then his film's the one for you. But if you like badass movie where your heroes are real and wearing leather and motorbike suits and body armor and hardcore gritty punches, this is the one for you."

He cooks, he's cool and now he's written a graphic novel.
Anthony Bourdain, who cut his teeth in the CBGBs punk world back in the day, was at San Diego Comic-Con promoting Vertigo's "Get Jiro," the celebrity chef's futuristic graphic novel set in a world (of possible fantasy wish fulfillment?) where cooks rule the streets like crime lords.
MTV Geek's Steven Smith sat down with the "No Reservations" star to talk about his foray into geekdom.

FROM MTV MULTIPLAYER: If you're a gamer who likes comic books or vice versa, then the upcoming video game "Injustice: Gods Among Us" should probably be on your radar.
The new fighting game pitches some of the most badass characters in the DC universe against one another, though not all of the playable superheroes and villains have been revealed yet. Well, what better place to make that unveiling than San Diego Comic-Con?
The folks at NetherRealm Studios (the same people who do "Mortal Kombat") announced today that Cyborg and Nightwing are two popular characters who will be making an appearance as playable characters in the game. They'll be joining the already-announced Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman.
There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home. That incantation, by the way, has not transported us anywhere — because we're feeling mighty comfortable exactly where we are here in San Diego, having a blast at Comic-Con International.
It's our third day on the ground now, and despite the fact that it's Friday the 13th, luck seems to be very much on our side when it comes to the folks we're speaking with today.
