Comic-Con 2012 Important Information Updates Lines Bag and ID Checks

Two weeks from today Comic Con 2012 opens with Preview Night. The long awaited convention is ALMOST HERE! I know I can’t wait to be there. Comic Con updated their site with some changes related to their rules on lining up/camping. For any that have been to Comic Con the lines are quite well known. Fans really wishing to get into a certain panel have been known to camp out for DAYS. Well that might change (well not much just now they will be regulated) What’s interesting has to do with the ‘no saving’ spots rule below.

Comic-Con International Line-Up Rules

While Comic-Con discourages any line-ups in advance at Plaza Park outside Hall H, if you do find yourself in line for an extended period of time, please adhere to these rules:

For safety issues we cannot allow anyone to line up in the Park until ALL tents, canopies, stanchions and work is completed at the Park. This also includes areas adjacent to the park, so please no waiting nearby for work to be completed. We anticipate that all work will be finished sometime Tuesday morning (July 10), however this is not a guarantee.

Because this is a safety issue, we have been told that anyone waiting in the area before all work is completed will be asked to leave regardless of time of arrival or length of time they have been waiting.

In an effort to accommodate as many people as possible with the least amount of impact for all, please follow the rules below:

  • Camping is not allowed.
  • No tents, canopies, inflatables, cots, beds, furniture, large coolers, heaters, large fans, large umbrellas, chaise lounges, open flames, or anything of similar size of any kind as determined by the Convention Center.
  • You are allowed to have one chair per person of relatively normal size. You may use a sleeping bag or blanket as well, provided it is only taking up the space of one person.
  • No facilities or services will be available in the Park, so plan accordingly.
  • Restroom access will be available in Lobby G of the Convention Center from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM each night starting Tuesday, July 10. No other access to facilities will be available.
  • Please respect the grounds and dispose of trash in trash receptacles. Please do not leave any trash or waste behind.
  • No “saving” a spot in line unless it is only temporary, such as a restroom break.

SOURCE: Comic-Con 2012 :: Important Information.

The program schedule will be officially released by Comic Con shortly. Expect to see the Wednesday/Thursday schedule on the Comic Con website tomorrow. They will release the Friday schedule on Friday, etc. Waiting for the Con has sucked but it is almost here!

Expect to see very LONG LINES for Hall H programs. The final Twilight movie “Breaking Dawn” part 2 will hold the first panel on Thursday in Hall H. Twilight fans last year started lining up on the Sunday before the Con opened. It sounds like they won’t be allowed to line up until all of the preparations have been completed by Comic Con. Hall H holds 6500 seats for fans yes that’s a lot but it is not enough for some shows. Game of Thrones will be in Hall H on Friday July 13, 2012. True Blood will be in the smaller venue Ballroom 20 on Saturday 7/14/12.

A prelim listing of the program of panels announced so far is on this link. I am still updating the  list.

UPDATE: Comic Con posted the first part of the exhibitor map:

Kickstarter Sensation “Sullivan’s Sluggers” Hits a Home Run on ComicXology

Just got the press release from comicXology. The record breaking undead baseball comic to debut in single issue today June 27.2012.

Kickstarter sensation Sullivan’s Sluggers, the pending graphic novel from creators Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe, will debut as a series of single issues with issue #1 premiering today exclusively on comiXology — the world’s largest digital comics platform with over 75 million downloads to date. Earlier this month, Sullivan’s Sluggers took the internet by storm with a Kickstarter campaign that outperformed even the most wild expectations. Now, fans won’t have to wait one more day to experience a taste of the Sullivan’s Sluggers graphic novel with Sullivan Sluggers #1 on comiXology today.

Sullivan’s Sluggers quickly became an internet phenomenon after its Kickstarter campaign surpassed its initial goal of $6,000 and almost hit $100,000 in the 30-day campaign. The graphic novel was also optioned for adaption to the silver screen before the Kickstarter campaign even ended.  Created by Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe, the team behind Sullivan’s Sluggers didn’t want to wait until the graphic novel was printed to get it into the hands of fans, so they approached comiXology to serialize the graphic novel over six single issues.

“We’re excited to be able to bring Sullivan’s Sluggers to comiXology before the graphic novel comes out in print,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “It was great for comiXology to be counted among the early incentives for the book’s backers during the Kickstarter campaign and now we can’t wait to let the rest of the world in on this bloody great comic.”

“ComiXology is the premier place for digital comics,” said co-creator Mark Andrew Smith. “Releasing Sullivan’s Sluggers with comiXology’s unique one-two punch reading experience of CMX-HD and in their revolutionary Guided View gives fans something different than with the print graphic novel. From shopping to reading, there just isn’t anything else out there that touches comiXology.”

Sullivan’s Sluggers tells the story of a down and out minor league baseball team and their Coach, Casey Sullivan, as they face off against a terrifying legion of undead monsters in an epic fight for survival. When America’s favorite past time becomes one team’s ultimate nightmare, hilarity, horror and one killer comic ensues.

Available across iPhoneiPadAndroidKindle Firethe Web and the comiXology retailer digital storefronts, Sullivan’s Sluggers #1 (of 6) is out today.

The Walking Dead Escape

The Walking Dead Escape will be held in San Diego during Comic Con. This obstacle course is in conjunction with the release of issue No. 100 of the Eisner Award winning “The Walking Dead” comic book series.

[box] “Our fans have been reading about it, watching it, and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead: Escape,” series creator Robert Kirkman said in a statement. “We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.”[/box]

The FAQ section of the “Walking Dead Escape” has the following info for those interested in participating:

OVERVIEW

The course has been specifically designed for participants with a wide range of abilities.

The world we know is about to end. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions will sweep the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. The only way to survive is to buy an Evac Pass, track the virus and get out before it is too late.

In a matter of months society will crumble and San Diego will be first of many cities to fall. Only a few will escape. Some won’t even try.

What is a Walker?

This is a Walker

Survival is Not a Race

The average time of completion is 35-45 minutes.

The Walking Dead Escape is not a race. No one is timed, and you are not required to run, but the slow usually die for a reason.

Be prepared to climb, crawl, and slide.

Depending on the encountered Walker, you may need to move briskly or lightly jog in an effort to avoid infection.

Hiding is recommended if confronted with a Walker horde.

Move swiftly the end is near.

Rules

The goal is to make it to the Evacuation Zone without having contact with any Walkers.

Be aware, the Government believes infection can be spread by touch.

Government Scientists will be waiting at the Evacuation Zone, and will perform a scan to determine whether or not participants have been infected by the virus.

You must start with your assigned Evacuation time in order to participate.

All participants are expected to be respectful, safe, and courteous on the course and to fellow participants. The course was designed to create a fun experience; common sense applies.

All entries are final with no refunds.

All decisions by officials are final and binding.

Costumes ok.

Absolutely no weapons allowed (real or otherwise).

What’s Included

All Survivors and Walkers will receive an Exclusive Special Edition of the 100th Issue of The Walking Dead.

All Spectators will receive an Exclusive Special Edition poster of the cover of the 100th Issue of The Walking Dead.

Who is the Walking Dead Escape for?

Anyone looking for a front row seat to the real-life action event of a lifetime.

Must be 16 years of age to participate.

3 Ways To Participate

Survivor – Navigate through Zombie infected Evacuation Zone.

Walker – Embrace the inevitable and become one of the undead.

Spectator – Watch the Apocalypse from the sidelines at the Escape Party.

Wave Times

You will select your wave time during registration. Waves will run every 20 minutes.

Thursday, July 12 / 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Friday, July 13 / 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM

Saturday, July 14 / 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Evacuation Time

You will select your evac time during the online registration process. Plan on arriving 20 minutes before your wave time to check in.

Obstacles

The Evacuation Route will feature multiple obstacles such as cargo nets and rope bridges.

No one will be disqualified if they are unable to complete a certain obstacle, but it may heighten the risk of infection.

Michael McMillian Photos WonderCon Day 2


IDW included True Blood’s very own Michael McMillian as a featured guest at their booth on day 2 of WonderCon 2012. He was so nice to us when we stopped by for him to autograph our True Blood comics. Fans also brought along  copies of “Lucid”.  Michael is the author for the comic series.

Warner Bros. picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s comic book mini-series “Lucid”. for writer-producer Akiva Goldsman to develop and produce as a potential new film franchise. Zachary Quinto’s production banner Before the Door, which created the book, also is on board to adapt the property for the bigscreen. SOURCE:

Alexander Skarsgard Photos WonderCon Battleship Panel


Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker and Peter Berg attended the Battleship panel at WonderCon 2012. They showed a new trailer that featured more of Alexander Skarsgard’s character of Stone Hopper interacting with his on screen brother Taylor Kitsch. The trailer shows the brothers at a bar celebrating Kitsch’s birthday and big brother Stone is buying him drinks. (complete with a celebratory birthday cupcake). Kitsch sees Brooklyn at the bar and of course makes a wish for her. He is unemployed and big brother Stone is in the Navy. We learn that Stone is following in their father’s footsteps and looks out for his younger brother.

Kitsch does his best to impress Brooklyn in the bar and winds up trying to procure a chicken burrito for the hungry beauty.  He goes to great lengths to obtain the burrito and it was quite a comical scene. The next trailer shown has a time jump of five  years into the future and Kitsch is now in the Navy and has really cleaned up his act. The second trailer also featured some of the action showing Rihanna in her acting debut.
