Comic Con's full program schedule is finally out, since Sunday's schedule was released this morning. And as usual, it's extremely quiet, especially in comparison to Saturday's Star Trek/Marvel/Alien extravaganza, but there are still several panels of interest to true geeks, particularly in the comics arena.

Marvel's movie panels may be on Saturday, but they have several exciting comics panels on Sunday, including Spider-Man's Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy, the Women of Marvel panel featuring Ms. Marvel creator Sana Amanat, as well as a spotlight on legendary comics writer Matt Fraction, who has written modern classics like Sex Criminals and ODY-C in addition to a variety of series for Marvel.

On the fantasy side, the big Hall H panel belongs to Supernatural, which is entering season twelve next year and has a special video presentation for fans. And although Lucasfilm is skipping Comic Con this year to focus on Star Wars Celebration, on the science side we can all find out how to build our very own life-size R2-D2. 

Here are some highlights, but you can check out the full schedule on Comic Con's website:
