SDCC 2018: TV Trailers Overflow at Comic Con

Comic Con is often remembered for the big panels in Hall H, the massive studio presence by companies like Marvel, and the fans.  When Marvel announced they would not have the usual massive presence many worried that the behemoth that is SDCC might be slowing down in its old age (next year the con turns 50).  Nothing could have been further from the truth.

Along with news of tentpole films like Aquaman, WonderWoman84, and Godzilla King of Monsters there were also a lot of great new trailers for shows like Doctor Who, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Walking Dead franchise.

Sometimes those big reveals overshadow some other shows worthy of attention.
