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:

PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

THURSDAY, JULY 21
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Creating the Zeitgeist, 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m., Room: 23ABC

Comics are more popular than ever, and it’s all thanks to creators who are bringing their passions, interests, and original ideas to the medium. Chynna Clugston Flores (BLUE MONDAY), Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), and a few more special guests are making comics cooler, story by story.

FRIDAY, JULY 22
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Defining New Worlds, 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., Room: 23ABC

Comics are capable of anything, if you give them a chance. Joe Harris & Kelly Fitzpatrick are creating near-future sci-fi in SNOWFALL, Chris Burnham showed us a vision of hellish horror in NAMELESS, and Steven Seagle & Jason Katzenstein brought us an all-ages monster-themed coming-of-age tale in CAMP MIDNIGHT. They create new worlds that readers fall into and love forever, and they share their expertise here.

SATURDAY, JULY 23
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Riffing on Reality, 1:00 – 2:00p.m., Room: 7AB  

Works don’t have to be completely realistic to feel real—sometimes just dipping a toe in reality and then taking off in another direction will do the job. Joshua Williamson co-creates NAILBITER, Caitlin Kittredge writes THROWAWAYS, and Matt Fraction scripts ODY-C & SEX CRIMINALS. These creators and our special guests take something we know well and then throw a monkey wrench into the works, creating something familiar, but innovative, at the same time.

SUNDAY, JULY 24
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Tomorrow’s Comics Today, 2:00 – 3:00p.m., Room: 7AB    

What do mainstream comics look like? What appeals to “the average reader”? Bryan Lee O’Malley & Leslie Hung (SNOTGIRL), Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Brandon Thomas (HORIZON), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) are making books that appeal to anyone and everyone, and redefining the idea of mainstream comics in the process.

SIGNINGS* HOSTED AT IMAGE COMICS BOOTH (#2729):
* wristbands will be available for fans to pick as soon as doors open, first come, first served, at the Image booth on the day of the desired ticketed signing.

000000000000-nerd-machine

Press Release:

Zachary Levi and David Coleman’s uber brand The Nerd Machine is bringing fan favorite NERD HQ back to the New Children’s Museum. This marks the sixth year for NERD HQ to set up camp in downtown San Diego for the annual SDCC weekend. NERD HQ brings the nerd community a four-day haven to connect, recharge and enhance their Con experience. This year’s guests can look forward to a return of the preeminent “Conversations for a Cause” panel series, as well as over 160 hands-on gaming experiences on both PC and console brought to you by AMD and Xbox, and a VR experience brought to you by Oculus.

NERD HQ is excited to announce a re-teaming with gaming partner AMD and this year’s new co-headline sponsor, Xbox. This new sponsorship will bring combined 13 playable titles which includes Battlefield 1 courtesy of EA and DICE, playable on 64 PC’s powered by AMD, and Xbox One hands-on gameplay experiences including Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, Titanfall 2, Dead Rising 4, ReCore, and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition and many more. Fans will also get to experience several new PC games from The Square Enix Collective including The Turing Test & Black the Fall.

NERD HQ will see the expansion of the fan experience with a new VR gaming lounge, in partnership with Oculus and AMD. Located on the upper level, players can get hands on with a range of VR experiences all playable with the new Oculus Rift.
The fan favorite philanthropic panel series ‘Conversations for a Cause’ will once again be positioned on the lower level in a dedicated enhanced auditorium. The annual panel series has given fans unique opportunities to have sometimes surprising, intimate experiences with their favorite celebrities. Previous panels have played host to some of the biggest names in pop-culture like Joss Whedon, William Shatner, Tom Hiddleston, Tatiana Maslany, Nathan Fillion, Sophie Turner, Andrew Lincoln, Jeff Bridges, Seth Green, Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Guillermo Del Toro, Vin Diesel, Kellan Lutz, Dylan O’Brien and Norman Reedus, just to name a few. Tickets for panels are $22, and all proceeds raised through ticket sales go directly to non-profit Operation Smile whose mission is to help improve the health and lives of children across the world. For 2016, all of the panels will be streamed live on multiple platforms, including Facebook, IGN, AMD & the Nerd Machine YouTube Channel, NerdMachineTV.

The NERD HQ APP and website have undergone a complete rebuild. Guests will be able to pre-register for Nerd HQ, secure gameplay sessions, and link to Brown Paper Tickets to purchase seats for “Conversations for a Cause’ panels.

The Nerd HQ website has also been updated and features all of the same functionality as the Nerd HQ App. ( thenerdmachine.com/nerd-hq ) The Nerd HQ app will be available to download on iOS and Android in early July.

NERD HQ welcomes newest sponsor Johnson & Johnson in 2016. The merging of the company’s popular‘Donate a Photo” app and NERD HQ’s popular “Smiles for Smiles” campaign, will offer fans a new opportunity to raise funds for Operation Smile. Whether it’s through the APP or onsite at NERD HQ for every photo uploaded, Johnson & Johnson donates $1 to Operation Smile*.

Nerd HQ is also partnering with Live.me, the live broadcasting app that has found it’s home in the top 10 app list after only launching in April of this year. It allows fans to share virtual gifts to broadcasters, which can be redeemed for cash. The app will give fans exclusive access to celebrity interviews from the “Conversations for a Cause” green room, along with an insider’s look at all the action during Nerd HQ. In an effort to raise more awareness and support for Operation Smile, all proceeds raised on the official Nerd HQ Live.me channel from July 21-24 will go directly to the organization. Be sure to follow all the excitement at Nerd HQ by downloading Live.me and following The Nerd Machine.

SATURDAY, JULY 23

3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF DARK HORSE (Room 7AB)

Thirty years ago, Dark Horse arrived with an agenda different from that of any other publisher in comics. The young company was founded on the belief that comics creators should have the option to retain the rights to their own work, and it continues to be a highly fertile breeding ground for new characters, concepts, and more! Now, the publisher is poised to make headlines again with some of the biggest news about new original work since Frank Miller brought Sin City to the pages of Dark Horse Presents! Join panelists for an exclusive look at upcoming and unannounced creator-owned work from some of the biggest names in and outside the industry! This will be the comics panel everyone will be talking about at this year’s show!

SUNDAY, JULY 24

12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER—SPOTLIGHT ON GENE YANG! (Room 24ABC)

Please come celebrate Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender with the brilliant mind of Eisner winner Gene Luen Yang and special guests! Anything from discussing past story lines to teasing the future will be on the table at a panel full of surprises and behind-the-scenes stories!
