It’s almost time for Comic-Con International: San Diego (AKA San Diego Comic-Con AKA SDCC)! We are hard at work getting every last little detail in place, and some pieces still aren’t set but this is the post for you if you’re attending this year! We’ll keep it updated as we go, so be sure to check back in if you need more info.
Our main Skybound booth will be our usual location at Booth #2729! Image on one side, us on the other. McFarlane is joining us again and I hear they might have a surprise or two for you.
We’re also pleased to announce that Superfight has been doing so well that it’s going to have its own dedicated booth! You can find our Superfight team battling, selling, and talking shop at Booth #2800! We’ll have our three new decks with us: The Anime Deck, The Walking Dead Deck, and the Challenge Deck!
We’re doubling down on our space at PETCO Park! Not only is The Walking Dead Escape coming back, we’ve teamed up with The Walker Stalkers to help run it. They’re also bringing the Fan Fest, a con-within-a-con for Walking Dead fans! Signings, photo ops, panels, and more. And we’re setting up a large event area at the Fan Fest where we’ll be coming to you live via Twitch and where fans can play upcoming Skybound titles! We’ll have a much larger post with all of our partners and more info on everything we’re doing at PETCO very soon!
