DC Announces Booth New Wristband Procedure for Selected Signings, Events

In General News, Panel & Autograph News by Robert Warners1 Comment

DC has released part of their signing schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2016, which includes the likes of Grant Morrison, Jim Lee, the casts of Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad, and more. But things for these particular signings  is going to work a little differently this year, with an all-new wristband procedure that DC is using for select signings:

This year, wristbands will be distributed differently from years past. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, wristbands for the below listed activities will be distributed in the Sails Pavilion of the Convention Center as part of the WB queue line. The line opens at 6am, and wristbands will be handed by a lottery system, not by a first come, first served basis.

Fans will come up and choose between a wristbanded event taking place in either the DC or WB booth (two separate booth locations). Once an event is selected (only one can be chosen), a raffle ticket will be drawn; if the ticket has a unique stamp, a wristband will be provided. If it doesn’t, fans can go back in line to try again. This lottery will be open to all, including exhibitors and professionals.

In quick summary, you’ll enter the WB queue line and from there, you’ll select which event you want to draw a ticket for, DC or WB. Now on to the signings and events that will be at DC which require a wristband:
