This year, the foam sword will drop on the superheroes at Comic-Con 2012. With all the Evil Queen worship, the absence of Star Trek 2, and the undeniable dominance of fantasy television, there's no doubt that the world of magic and dragons is poised to gobble up Comic-Con faster than a Khaleesi munching on a horse heart. Just look take a look at the evidence.
In 2011, we crowned television the king of Con. A year later, TV still governs the San Diego Convention Center with an iron fist. The bulk of well-attended panels at Comic-Con these days are all tube-centric, with a once faceless group of TV scribes heralded like gods. George R.R. Martin can barely walk through the floor without a standing ovation. We can't wait to see what would happen if Community creator Dan Harmon strolled in so shortly after his unceremonious exit from the series. It would be like a Palm Sunday of flying geek bodies.
