What's better than getting to soak up some San Diego sun? How about checking out some of these awesome Comic-Con panels filled with Crush favorites! With only a week until the annual celebration of all things geek kicks off, here's your guide to all the things you just can't miss.


Vampires, Vampires, Vampires
Indulge in your excitement for the final film installment with an exclusive sneak peek from Summit Entertainment at "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" panel early Thursday afternoon. Plus, there is a Q&A with the cast. Umm, sign me up please!

Like your vampires on the small screen? The three actors from one of TV's hottest love triangles—Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley—will be answering questions at "The Vampire Diaries" screening and Q&A on Saturday afternoon. Then stick tight for another 15 minutes to bite into the "True Blood" panel, featuring some of your favorite Bon Temps residents, including "Magic Mike"'s Joe Manganiello.

Bookworm Bliss
For those of you who are looking for pages to turn, there are a number of panels just for you! Caught the "Breaking Dawn" panel and now want to go beyond the books? The Twilight Fan Fiction Group at noon on Saturday is the perfect place to hear from writers having fun putting their creative spin on the stories. At the What's Hot in Young Adult Fiction panel on Sunday at noon, a whole bunch of your favorite YA writers, including Tahereh Mafi (whose cover for her new book, "Unravel Me" was recently released) and Kami Garcia (who co-wrote "Beautiful Creatures" which just wrapped production on its film adaptation). Stop by to hear them and more writers talk about the genre and answer questions. Lastly, while the title of this panel makes us feel old, we've been missing Harry and the gang since last year's final movie, so the 15 Years Since Philosopher's Stone: Harry Potter Fandom in 2012 panel is looking pretty magical on Sunday afternoon.

And more!
Need more girl-power in your life? Late Friday afternoon you can see some awesome ladies like "Twilight"'s Nikki Reed and "True Blood"'s Kristin Bauer van Straten at the Entertainment Weekly: Powerful Women in Pop Culture (aka Women Who Kick Ass!) panel. Also check out the "Glee" panel on Saturday evening featuring the likes of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera who are ready to talk all about what went down last season at McKinley. Lastly, MTV's Teen Wolf" panel on Thursday afternoon won't only feature the screening of a new episode and cast Q&A, but a first-look at a new MTV comedy called "The Inbetweeners." Intrigued? We hope so!

Be sure to stick close to Hollywood Crush throughout Comic-Con as we cover all your favorite things!
