 At Comic Con Ahoy, Liv went for an autograph and we both watched the panel. At FACTS and Comic Con Amsterdam we also watched the panels. If you ever go to a panel of Manu Bennett you can expect a long panel..the man has a lot to tell and it is a delight to listen to him. At Dutch Comic Con 2022, we made a few pictures at his panel. Also Liv did an impromptu photo op with Mr. Bennett.
