That Joss Whedon Comic Con schedule in full. Friday 24th reads like this - 4.00 - 5.15 pm Joss and Eliza chatter about Dollhouse and 'Epitaph One' gets shown in all its glory. And then at 5.15pm, Joss will talk about his Dark Horse projects for 45 minutes. Oh and make sure you're around on Sunday for the Once More With Feeling fan screening.

Saturday features the intriguing "Bram Stoker: The Joss Whedon of His Day?" panel. Sadly Bram will be too dead to actually attend.

Here's a link for every program with "Whedon" in the name or description.

FWIW, although the schedule marks "Dollhouse" and "Joss Whedon" as two separate and successive panels, functionally it's one long two-hour thing. If anyone's making plans based upon the listed split, you probably shouldn't.

To clarify: That's based upon Scott Allie telling me that it's "all one panel", mainly Dollhouse "with some Dark Horse stuff thrown in". It's Joss' only event, except for a signing at the Dark Horse booth.

Planning on being in Ballroom 20 from about 11:30 am until around 7 pm on Friday. This is a marathon, people. Train, hydrate, and pack lunches accordingly.
I just got Friday tickets on eBay tonight, courtesy of Comic-Con. I'm ridiculously excited. Are we allowed to use the restroom if we have to, or will that lose us our seats? I'll have someone to hold my place, if that's allowed.

And I pretty much plan on showing up as early as they'll let me into the room. No way I am going to miss this.

EDIT: It's Joss' only event, except for a signing at the Dark Horse booth.

Any idea when that would be? Right after the panel, or a whole other day, or what?

Could someone going to Comicon please ask Joss about "The Shepherd's Tale"? Thank you.
Jobo, there are bathroom passes available from door people at the ballroom's back exit. Get one, exit, go, come back to the same back door, hand back your pass, go back to your seat.

I haven't heard the signing details yet.

News on The Shepherd's Tale would be fairly clutch. Man, I really wish I had thought about getting tickets earlier, by the time I tried to, they were sold out (for all the important days anyway).
Meanwhile, other WHEDONesque-type events.

Thursday 2:00-3:00 in Room 32AB, "Costume Designers: Designing for Television Production", including Shawna Trpcic.

Thursday 6:00-7:00 in Room 6DE, "Mad Science: The Science Behind Science Fiction", including Jane Espenson.

Friday 11:45-12:45 in Ballroom 20, "Caprica/Battlestar Galactica: The Plan", including Jane Espenson.

Friday 12:45-1:45 in Room 6BCF, "Spartacus: Blood and Sand", including Steven S. DeKnight.

Friday 4:30-5:30 in Room 30AB, "Production Designers", including Stuart Blatt.
Barrage of info continues. Jane will be signing at the QMx booth at 3:00 on Friday. Shawna might be signing there at 2:00.
I also plan on being in ballroom 20 all day so I'm glad to hear about the bathroom passes. (Is it bad that I am a fan of every show that is having a panel in that room on Friday?)
I'm so glad I'm not going to Comic Con. I don't have to choose between Farscape and The Guild.

Usually I'm not a jealous type, but I do feel it every year around this time. Guess I should start saving my money so I can just go next year.
The number of Whedonesque people there is quite amazing. Morena, & Adam Baldwin, Juliet Landau, Felicia, David B and well as those mentioned above. And there is too much overlap!
I think I'll just superglue myself to b!X and Lioness...yeah, that'll work!
Given how poor my seats usually are for most Comic-Con panels, I'd suggest a different strategy.
Are you suggesting the best strategy is to avoid you then?
OK, then, Super Sneekrit Plan B!
ETA: I have no idea what I'm talking about. This'll be my first C-C, and for all I know, I'll be standing around with my jaw on the floor for most of the time.

I don't have the worst seats, so no.

Meanwhile, here is every schedule mention of the term "Dollhouse".
Ooo. That "Mad Science" panel already sounded pretty good, but seeing who's on it in addition to Jane Espenson and that the National Academies is involved, I'm even more intrigued.
Ha Ha, me too m'cookies. I made a spreadsheet of all the stuff I want to see, but who knows if it will actually happen. I'm most excited about meeting whedonesquers and seeing Joss.
Yeah, and I just decided to drop any of the bigger events on Thursday and am going to spend most of that day in the 6* rooms. So I'm planning on hitting the Mad Science one before moving over to Dr. Horrible.
I think some of us will be travelling in a pack, m'cookies actual and Harm. Spreadsheets do seem to be the way to go, I find, too.
I have no spreadsheet, just an iCal calendar. And if a potential iPhone app materializes, bye-bye iCal calendar.
I hope Joss doesn't sign stuff on Friday. If he does, I won't know what to do, stay in the ballroom all day or risk losing a spot for a chance to briefly meet the man.
More schedule madness:

Shawna Trpcic will be signing in the autograph hall on Thursday from 3-4, after her panel.
Trying to compile, what am I missing?
