Comic-Con is the perfect place to fill up your autograph book or get an artist to sign their collectible or project. Please also note, anyone in the autograph area will sign the Souvenir Program Book given at Comic-Con at no charge.
If you’re looking for the autograph area at Comic-Con, it’s located on the Upper Level in the Sails Pavilion. Many artists will be there and some will be signing directly after their panel, so it’s best to keep checking the website or program guide the night before.
Autograph Area Hours: Thursday through Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can check for changes to the schedule at: MySCHED on the website, their mobile app, in the daily newsletter, on information boards located throughout the center, and at the Autograph Area Information Desk.
There may be tickets or a charge for autographs from the guests depending on the artist and their arrangement with Comic-Con. It’s a good idea to arrive as early as possible for the autograph because the line may close, even if fans are still lined up.
Here’s who we’re excited about:
