Warner Bros. Discovery New York City Comic Con is flying back into town from Thursday, Oct. 6 to Sunday, Oct. 9. Different divisions of the company are uniting for the weekend’s schedule, featuring panels and happenings from DC, HBO Max, Cartoon Network, Discovery+ and more. 

Between beloved return panelists of the Doom Patrol cast and first looks at new shows and seasons like Velma and Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler, this weekend is a can’t-miss for any fans.
