NYCC 2016: Saturday Highlights
Saturday is likely to be the biggest and most crowded day of New York Comic Con. However, the spreading out of events, activities, and panels across multiple locations has definitely helped to clear up some of the traffic jams on the showroom floor.
Check out our highlights and panel picks for Saturday or view the entire Saturday schedule HERE.

Much like Nathan Fillion will always be Mal Reynolds, Alan Tudyk will forever be remembered as Wash. Wondering what he’s been up to lately? Check out his panel to hear about his roles in Con Man, Powerless, and maybe see if he’s got anything to say about a movie called Rogue One on the Main Stage.
The Man In The High Castle – 1:30PM – 2:30PM

AMC’s The Walking Dead – 5:30PM – 6:30PM
If this were a betting blog, we’d guess that this panel won’t reveal Negan’s victim, but with a star-studded panel and a promised sneak peek of season seven, this panel will be anything but boring. Join us as we livetweet the event held in the theatre at Madison Square Garden before the October 23rd premiere.
Stan Lee Interview – 5:30PM – 5:45PM
