We only attended the panel at Comic Con Brussels. At Comic Con Holland, Liv went over to the dark side and did a selfie with the Emperor. We wanted to attend the panel, but it was so crowded, that we could not see or hear anything. We did take a few pictures. Same story for Comic Con Brussels Spring.
