Another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone. This means that Den of Geek staffers might finally get some sleep this week.
Not everyone gets to spend a few days in San Diego to watch this all unfold live, and not everyone feels the need to live at their computer while it’s all happening. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to all of the biggest stories that came out of SDCC 2016. Keep in mind, we’re still updating this, as we have an awful lot of transcribing to do, but this is what our tired brains have for you right now.
Click the headlines to get taken to full, detailed articles! Enjoy!
