George R.R. Martin Doing Multiple Signings at SDCC 2013 and a Game of Thrones Panel

George R.R. Martin SDCC

George R.R. Martin discussed his SDCC plans on his Not A Blog:

Coming to San Diego

The next convention on my calendar is the San Diego Comicon.

My dance card is already almost full. Yes, there will be a GAME OF THRONES panel, and I’ll be on it. It is scheduled for Friday, July 19, 2:50 to 3:45, in Hall H To be followed by an autographing at the WB booth. Of course, I’ll be joined on the panel by half a dozen cast members (no, don’t know which ones yet) and David and Dan.

I will also be doing a signing on Saturday, July 20, from 11:00am to noon, in the official autograph area. That one is for Bantam.

Working on two more signings: one for Avatar Comics, which will be launching their new comic of THE SKIN TRADE (based on my novella, scripted by Daniel Abraham) at the con, and one with the marvelous Gary Gianni, the artist for the 2014 ICE & FIRE calendar, which will debut in San Diego. Details on those when I have ‘em.

I am not on any panels besides the one for GAME OF THRONES, nor will I be doing any readings (come to worldcon for that), but there should be plenty of chances for anyone who wants me to deface their books, maps, games, videotapes, or body parts with my illegible scrawl. But PLEASE, if you want my autograph, come to one of these four signings. Don’t stop me in the hotel lobby or on the street or in a restaurant when I am trying to have dinner.

Press Release:

FAN ADVISORY: CHANGES TO AUTOGRAPH TICKET SYSTEM FOR WARNER BROS. SIGNINGS AT COMIC-CON 2012

 Warner Bros. Entertainment Announces Comic-Con Autograph Signings for Nearly 20 Series, Including The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and HBO’s Game of Thrones, Among Others

 New This Year: Ticket Drawings and Wristband Distributions to Begin in the Morning on the Day of Signings in the Sails Pavilion, Utilizing One Line for All Ticket Drawings for All Signings

BURBANK, Calif. (June 28, 2012) — Comic-Con and Warner Bros. announced today that the Studio will once again follow the official Comic-Con® International: San Diego ticket distribution system for autograph signings at Comic-Con 2012, with the Con implementing a new procedure for 2012. The Studio will present more than 20 signings at the booth this year, including TV and digital series, as well as motion pictures (see current signing dates below).

  • All signings will be held at the Warner Bros. booth, #4545 on the Comic-Con exhibition floor
  • For the second straight year, Warner Bros. will distribute wristbands for signings via daily ticket drawings held at the Sails Pavilion inside the San Diego Convention Center, under the long-standing Comic-Con system

NEW FOR THIS YEAR

  • For 2012, the following modifications will be in effect for the wristband line procedure:
  • All ticket drawings and wristband distributions for all signings will begin in the morning of the day of the specific signing, when the Sails Pavilion opens to attendees. Badged Comic-Con members can begin lining up as soon as the Sails Pavilion area opens to attendees. The ticket drawings will begin at 8:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter.
  • All of the drawings for all signings will now take place in one line on the morning of the signing
  • Advisory to fans and attendees: Lines will likely be much longer this year, and we appreciate your patience and understanding

“We look forward to Warner Bros.’ participation again at Comic-Con,” said David Glanzer, director of marketing and public relations for Comic-Con International. “The line-up of shows and talent is something we and the fans look forward to each year, and this year’s schedule seems to be the best yet!”

Here’s how it works:

  • Fans identify the signing they want to attend
  • On the morning of the day of the signing they hope to attend, fans should arrive at the Sails Pavilion floor (between Ballroom 20 and Rooms 6A, 6BCF and 6DE) in the morning
  • Ticket distribution for Comic-Con’s random draw will begin when the Sails Pavilion opens to attendees. Badged Comic-Con members can begin lining up as soon as the Sails Pavilion area opens. The ticket drawings will begin at 8:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter.
  • A limited number of wristbands will be available for each signing, via Comic-Con’s random draw process
  • There will be one line for all drawings and signings. We appreciate your patience!
  • The random drawing will determine which fans receive wristbands granting access to each autograph line
  • Fans who obtain wristbands should arrive at the Warner Bros. booth 30 minutes before the signing to line up

See below for the current signing dates for TV and digital series. The feature film signings will be announced at a later date.

All signings are at the Warner Bros. booth #4545.
