Times, they are a changing…
It looks like CCI is going ahead with their plans to have all the signings at Wondercon online only. Which means San Diego Comic Con is poised to follow suit shortly.
Personally, I know some people who would think that this is great, no more lines. But what it really means is, that your chance for a signing is now like finding a proverbial needle in a haystack.
Wondercon may not be a big deal, but when it comes to SDCC… It’s going to be nearly impossible to get anything.
I’ve had a debate today with someone who said, “But now it’s totally fair.” Well… No. I think fair is having the ability for a fighting chance. If all someone wants all weekend is the Wonder Woman signing for instance, then they had a good chance to camp out and get it. Now? Nadda.
If fans are willing to put the time into the signings then they should get a chance to have a crack at it. As it stands for SDCC you’ll be lucky to get Teen Titans Go… on Thursday because you’ll be competing with 150,000 people as opposed to maybe 4,000 people.
Thoughts anyone? Has SDCC jumped the shark?
Lines? We don’t need no stinking lines! WonderCon Anaheim is pleased to announce the debut of the online Exclusives Portal. If you have a WonderCon Anaheim 2018 badge, you may now go online to submit your interest in exclusive signings from Marvel, WBTV, DC Comics, and many more! No need to wait in line onsite to draw a ticket. You’ll know if you’ve been selected to participate in an exclusive signing before your arrival! Visit www.comic-con.org/wca/exclusive-signings for information on how to access the online Exclusives Portal.
The deadline to submit interest in an exclusive signing is 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on March 14, 2018. You must purchase or register for your WonderCon Anaheim 2018 badge prior to this date to be eligible. This will be your only chance to participate in the exclusive signings at WonderCon Anaheim 2018. There will be no onsite opportunities to be selected to participate in any of the exclusive signings.
To see if you are eligible to participate, and find the link for the online Exclusives Portal, simply log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and select the “Exclusives” tab.
If you do not have a Comic-Con Member ID, but have a WonderCon Anaheim 2018 badge, visit www.comic-con.org/wca/exclusive-signings for instructions on how to participate.
Participants will be randomly selected on or around March 19, 2018. After the selection process is complete, a notification will be sent to you via email. At that time, you must log in to the Exclusives Portal and select the “Confirmed” tab. If you were selected to take part in an exclusive signing, bring your printed selection confirmation and a valid photo ID onsite to claim your entrance into the exclusive signing.
Please keep in mind that not all eligible participants will be selected. Adding an exclusive signing to your cart does not guarantee you entry to the signing.
Remember, the deadline to submit interest in an exclusive signing is 10:00 AM PDT on March 14, 2018. Be sure to visit the Exclusives Portal well before the deadline.
Additional exclusive signings may be added before March 14, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates!
Thank you and good luck!
