The ‘Conversations For A Cause’ panels of the Nerd HQ off-site are some of the hotly contested ‘hot tickets’ of the entire San Diego Comic-Con event – partly because of the strength of the invited panelists, partly because of the sheer maths involved in getting tickets (only 300 people are in each audience), but mostly because of the draw of the panels themselves: up close and personal with some truly incredible guests.
The full details of the Conversations line up are yet to be officially released by The Nerd Machine; however, a couple of eagle-eyed fans have spotted that the Brown Paper Tickets site – home of the company that administer the sale of the badges for The Nerd Machine – are now listing panel names and times.
