GoComics, the web’s largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips and web comics, has announced its booth signings and event schedule for this month’s San Diego Comic-Con.
The company will be stationed at the Andrews McMeel Publishing booth, #1503 and #1505, with daily signings, and giveaways of its GoComics PRO memberships, comic collections and more. GoComics will also have prints for sale at the booth from Calvin and Hobbes and the recent Stephan Pastis/Bill Watterson collaboration, Pearls Before Swine, with pre-orders of these available now for those who are not attending, or if you just don’t want to risk bending and creasing your awesome new print navigating the crowded aisles of the Exhibit Hall.
In addition, GoComics will be on foot in the Gaslamp with special giveaways for those who weren’t able to make it inside the Convention Center. Be sure to watch their Twitter account for announcements on when and where they’ll be.
Check out the entire schedule of events in the release below, which was also posted to their blog.
