San Diego Comic-Con will be here before we know it, and one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle that is the pop culture phenomenon has been unveiled by Comic-Con International. The list of Exhibitors, members of the Small Press and Artist’s Alley sections, as well as the Fan Tables sections, have all been revealed on CCI’s site. The map is also now live.
Over 730 exhibitors (or over 1,000 if you include all areas) are listed for this year’s Comic-Con, covering comics, merchandise, video games, television and film. All the major players in each category are represented — for comics, that includes BOOM! Studios, DC Entertainment, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, Marvel Entertainment, Oni Press.
For the big studios, there’s Lionsgate, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros., Marvel, and Lucasfilm. STX Entertainment is also in attendance – sharing a booth with UGLYDOLL.
On the TV side, fans should head to booths for ABC, Warner Bros., BBC America, Cartoon Network, History Channel, Nickelodeon, AMC, Comedy Central, Twentieth Century Fox, TBS, and Netflix (!!!!).
We’re also excited about Funko, Acme Archives, Hasbro, Monogram, a booth all about the new Comic-Con Museum, and – very interesting – a NASA booth!
With no Sony Pictures Entertainment, the gaming section of the floor mostly looks to be Xbox, Nintendo, Capcom, Blizzard, and other gaming companies.
Fans of Robotech X and Star Wars, should head to the Fan Tables, and if you’re a fan of anything, swing through Artist’s Alley to view work from over 160 artists, including Patrick Ballesteros and Katie Cook. This year’s Small Press section includes booths for over 100 companies like ACME Ink, Justin Harder, The Ninjabot, and others.
