In 2010 Castle made its Comic Con debut and thousands of fans turned up, some having lined up overnight, for a chance to hear from the Castle cast and crew. ABC gave each person attending a very nice water bottle and some lucky fans had the opportunity to attend an autograph signing after the panel. In 2011 Castle returned to Comic Con with another packed room full of fans, many having lined up outside the convention hall all night so they didn’t miss out on a seat.
Sadly last year Castle was removed from the Comic Con schedule to the disappointment of many. While there was no panel there were still things of interest to Castle fans over the weekend (See our report here) but it just wasn’t the same.
With Castle having one of the “gods of comic con” Nathan Fillion as its lead, and having released not one but 2 graphic novels plus a new comic series and another graphic novel on the way later this year in addition to soon to be released board game and trading cards it seems an event like comic con is the perfect fit for Castle and we’d like to see Castle return full force this year!
We would like to gather responses from fans to take to ABC in an effort to encourage them to bring Castle back to the San Diego Comic Con this year.
So, have you attended one of the Castle panels at SDCC in previous years? What did you think? Did you attend last year only to be disappointed at the lack of official Castle presence? Are you attending (or trying to!) this year? Do you want to see a Castle panel at the convention? Please comment below and we will take your responses to ABC!
