New York Comic Con autographs
Warner Bros is back! Not only are they bringing a huge chunk of major shows, they are doing signings for each of them! Not only that, but Ash vs. Evil Dead, From Dust Till Dawn and The Librarians are all doing signings with the full cast! It’ll be a crazy in the autograph hall this year!
Before you get too excited, please, PLEASE, verify if the signing is ticketed or when to line up, etc… Policies vary greatly so check-in ahead of time to learn the ground rules. In previous years, NYCC held an online lottery for the most high-profile signings. Since many of the WB signings are a half hour in length, they may do that again. I’ll keep you posted as soon as I hear anything!
Also, many of the multi-author panels will have signings in the autograph hall at the book store. Check there for a schedule and any signing requirements.
- [UPDATE] Stephanie Meyer (Autograph hall) – She’s still listed as having a signing, but there’s no additional confirmation with a specific time and place. I would suggest checking out the autograph hall first thing in the morning as any possible signing will be held there after her panel.
