Josswhedon_290 Friday is supposedly “Star Wars” Day at Comic-Con, but you may as well go ahead and call it Joss Whedon Day.

Joss will hold a panel about his latest prime-time foray (“Dollhouse”), and then will stick around for 45 minutes to discuss other projects. Expect those sessions to be packed.

See the Thursday schedule for Comic-Con.
