Fantasy/SciFi: ComicCon ABC/Disney to unveil sneak peek of Legend of the Seeker, panel features Terry Goodkind!! and the final panel for LOST…

PACKED schedule for the 2009 San Diego ComicCon. Despite the EMMYs dissing SciFi/Fantasy yet again (we had nominations for technical work and music but none for the creative process again, more on that later), ComicCon KNOWS the fans are out there and they won’t be let down this year, here is the ABC/Disney schedule:



A sneak peek at the highly-anticipated second season of the action-adventure series “Legend of the Seeker” from executive producers Ken Biller (“Star Trek: Voyager”), Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man”), Rob Tapert (“Xena”), Ned Nalle (“Hercules”) and Josh Donen (“Drag Me to Hell”), and starring Craig Horner, Bridget Regan and Bruce Spence. Inspired by Terry Goodkind’s bestselling epic fantasy series “The Sword of Truth,” Richard, Kahlan and Zedd will soon discover that in defeating Darken Rahl, their victory is short-lived, as they inadvertently unleashed an even greater evil upon the world. Premiering in November, join executive producers Ken Biller and Ned Nalle, Bruce Spence and Terry Goodkind for a moderated interview and audience Q&A session. Room 6DE
