Anchor Bay plans full list of events for SDCC

Anchor Bay has some very cool panels in store for visitors at the San Diego Convention Center. Sure they've got The Walking Dead and Spartacus- but the real news is the sci-fi favorite Michael Biehn will be in attendance as well.

Biehn has always been a personal favorite of mine. I'm a big time fan of pretty much all his biggest films- Terminator, Aliens, Tombstone... all awesome flicks. This is actually the actor's first ever Comic Con appearance as he promotes his new film (which he also wrote and directed!). So if you're going to be in attendance as well, then you'll definitely want to pay a visit to booth #4045 on the 13th.

But there's some other great stuff scheduled outside of Biehn's appearance too, here's your official SDCC '12 rundown from Anchor Bay:
