What's different this year?
- There will be a free day on Thursday, July 9th at the San Diego Central Library where graphic novel creators, authors, illustrators, librarians and educators will spend the afternoon talking about reading, writing, and using graphic novels in the classroom.
- There will be a free day on Saturday, July 11th at the San Diego Central Library where publishers will have panels open to the public.
- While a handful of powerhouse Hollywood studios (including Marvel Studios and Paramount) will not be on the convention floor, there will be a larger presence for Warner Brothers and its unveiling of its DC Cinematic Universe, Hunger Games: MockingJay Part 2, Scooby-Doo, Justice League: Gods and Monsters (to name a few), as well as sneak peaks for a host of new television series.
