While this year’s show continues the tradition of offering the most buzz-worthy items Thursday-Saturday, the lineup for Sunday has a few gems you might want to take note of, too. You can see the full schedule over at the official Comic-Con website, but I’ve picked out a few items to highlight — just in case you needed some help deciding what to check out.
