DC Announces SDCC 2016 Wristband Policy

000000000000000-sdcc-batmanPress Release:

Now that the word is out about the incredible array of activities in the DC booth (#1915) at Comic-Con International: San Diego, fans are probably wondering just when exactly they should be lining up to get that autograph from their favorite writer, artist or movie star.

Have no fear, DC is here to help! Here’s the schedule of activities in the DC booth requiring a wristband during Comic-Con weekend.

This year, wristbands will be distributed differently from years past. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, wristbands for the below listed activities will be distributed in the Sails Pavilion of the Convention Center as part of the WB queue line. The line opens at 6am, and wristbands will be handed by a lottery system, not by a first come, first served basis.

Fans will come up and choose between a wristbanded event taking place in either the DC or WB booth (two separate booth locations). Once an event is selected (only one can be chosen), a raffle ticket will be drawn; if the ticket has a unique stamp, a wristband will be provided. If it doesn’t, fans can go back in line to try again. This lottery will be open to all, including exhibitors and professionals.

For the Batman Arkham VR demos, wristbands will be handed out on a first-come, first served basis for all demos scheduled between 10am and 2pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For demos after 2pm, fans can go directly to the demo station in the DC booth for a wristband. On Sunday, fans can get their wristband at the Arkham demo station in the DC booth once the show floor opens.

Here’s the lineup for signings and events in the DC booth requiring a wristband:
