With Comic-Con@Home just days away, IDW has just dropped its upcoming schedule of eight panels. Although it’s all virtual, the publisher is still offering collectibles, exclusive variants, and signed bookplate edition graphic novels.

IDW is chatting Snake Eyes with Rob Liefeld, TMNT with Kevin Eastman, Sophie Campbell, and Chad Thomas, and The Mueller Report with Shannon Wheeler and Steve Duin. Plus, in anticipation of the newest Artist Edition book featuring Jim Lee’s work on X-Men, the man himself is showing up to talk with inker Scott Williams, as well as Scott Dunbier and Dirk Wood.

Looking forward, IDW is also sitting down IDW president, publisher, and chief creative officer Chris Ryall, John Barber and moderator George Gene Gustines  to talk about what’s next and show off some behind-the-scenes content.

Anyone who wants to sign up for panel notifications now, and get reminders for when they go live, can do so with links below. That’ll also automatically include participants in a special fan contest with one of each of IDW’s 2020 con exclusive variants up for grabs. Those who aren’t able to catch a panel when it goes live, can always head over to the Comic-Con@Home YouTube page and watch it whenever they choose. For full details on the IDW panel schedule, scroll down below.

In terms of exclusives, the publisher is offering a handful of variants, as well as signed bookplates. Should this be your thing, you should also note that “IDW is offering free domestic shipment on all orders of $35 or more, and a special “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” promotion on single issue exclusive comics, with the discount applied automatically to the least expensive product in the cart.” We’ll give you the full rundown below, but a few titles of note are Canto, TMNT, Locke and Key, and Jem and the Holograms: Dimension. These deals will be available on IDW’s dedicated Comic-Con@Home Exclusives web page through Monday, July 27th.
