COMICS CHANGES AND ADDITIONS!

Byrne/Shatner event location as you may have seen - was fixed - back to friday.

Jeff Lemire - now Friday, Saturday, Sunday. He will have a table - I need to figure out where, but he will!

New additions:

CHARLES SOULE will be joining the show at the Comic Sketch Art booth. P079

ASPEN COMICS will be at booth 944 and appearing there you will find: Frank Mastromauro, Peter Steigerwald, Blake Northcott, Siya Oum, Jordan Gunderson. They will have exclusive variants (See below), giveaways and more!

CELEBRITY CHANGES 

Jason Momoa has added an additional day and will now also be appearing on Sunday! More Photo Ops have been added. 
Robin Lord Taylor will now be appearing Fri & Sat.
Jennifer Morrison will now be appearing Sat only.

 

Due to an unforeseen professional commitment, Jeff Goldblum must postpone his appearance until FAN EXPO Canada 2019. Paul Reubens must also cancel his appearance due to work related commitments.

We will miss them both and hope to see them again in the future. If you have any Photo Ops being affected by the changes mentioned above, please note that Epic Photo Ops will be reaching out soon with regards to your options.

Does VIP this year give you front of the line for any other rooms in North or South Building other than 100's, I.e. 200, 700, ...? I noticed more celebrity Q&A's are in the 200 level rooms.  As well, will any comic artists being doing any signings in the comic signing area or just at their booths and does VIP give us any privileges at the comic booths?  Thanks.

VIP has never given front of the line for panel presentations. Just main theatre presentations however I can ask how that's being addressed in light of the fact that the flooding of the John Bassett Theatre in the North Building has necessitated moving a lot of the presentations that would have been there moving into other rooms. Which is why you noticed more Q&As are in the 200 level room.

Comic artist signings in the signing area are all on the schedule. Lots happening there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. VIP Lane in effect. Liu/Takeda, Snyder, Snyder/Capullo, Kubert, Ramos Specially ticketed event will all have access to VIP lanes.

Currently no, we are not set up to give VIP priority access at the artist tables. We are discussing adding a VIP concierge table to the south like they do in the celebrity area. Please feel free to come by the signing area and talk to me or one of my staff if you need assistance with any long table lines.

Thanks for the response. To clarify, because a lot of the Q&A's have moved to the 200 level, will our VIP pass work there as well? Otherwise it will seem more limited this year.  As well, is there anything you can do to help the VIPs get easier access to the comic panels?

@Kevin Boyd, I noticed on my tickets this year that we can pickup FXC wristbands early starting Tues Aug 28, but for some of the special experiences (specifically Scott Snyder / Greg Capullo, and the John Byrne / Will Shatner experiences), pickup only starts on Thurs.

I remember last year, I was able to get my wristbands and the Jim Lee signing experience ticket earlier in the week at same time. Is there a reason for this? Any chance we could pickup all tickets on the Tues/Wed for example? Thanks

I wish I could tell you the answer there. Wristbands and special tickets are processed differently, from what I've seen over the various shows this year. Probably wouldn't hurt to bring your special ticket email barcode with you in case they can get it for you.

With all the dealer sales regarding them, was just curious about the supply quantity. Also, curious of availability, especially for those showing up on Friday.
