Friday, July 23 will be a good day for vampire fans for there is a discussion about the phenomenon in addition to the panel of HBO's 'True Blood'.
San Diego Comic Con 2010 unveils the list of panels crowding the second day of the convention which will be held over the course of four days beginning Thursday, July 22. Day Two is filled equally by panels from NBC, CBS and HBO among others.
The highlights of the day would be the "True Blood" panel which will be held in the biggest room at the building, Ballroom 20. Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Joe Manganiello have been confirmed attending the panel for a Q&A session but there is no word on the Alexander Skarsgard yet.
The "True Blood" troupe will not arrive until 5:15 P.M., so there's still a time for vampire fans to attend the 3:00 P.M. discussion about "Evolving Urban Fantasy Beyond the Vampire Phenomenon".
