So much is going on at Comic-Con, and we’ve got it all here.
In what should delight fans from Russia, Aziz Ansari (yes, we’re getting to him soon), USWNT, and this guy, FOX’s revival of Animation Domination has a slew of new posters that you can see below that will be available at the show to go along with all of the killer panels FOX is bringing along. FOX is also bringing along a killer outside set up featuring ferris wheels and other attractions inspired by each of the animation domination series. It’s called FOX Fan Fair and there’s going to be all sorts of multi-reality experiences, Snapchat filters, free handouts, carnival games, and more. The attractions will run every day at 200 West Island Avenue. Expect to also see a bunch of the Comic-Con MTS railways wrapped in Animation Domination artwork.
Comedy Central’s going to be well-represented at San Diego Comic-Con with what might be one of the more underrated panels of the weekend. Crank Yankers will officially be unveiled (info below) and fan experiences inspired by the aforementioned series as well as South Park will be in tow.
