Over 550 exhibitors (or over 900 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, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, Marvel Entertainment (again separated into the main booth and a separate merch store), Oni Press, and the return of Dark Horse. And, most importantly — DC is back. Although the big Warner Bros. booth appears to be sitting out, DC has its own standalone booth for the first time since 2017.
For the big studios, there’s Marvel and Lucasfilm. As previously announced, Warner Bros. again won’t have a presence on the show floor this year.
On the TV side, Disney Television Studios, Nickelodeon, and Paramount+. There’s also a Doctor Who booth, that we’re sure is bigger on the inside. Similar to last year, AMC and Starz are MIA on the floor — and unfortunately, this year you can add Netflix to that list as well.
Into print and art? Be sure to check out 100% Soft, Daniel Danger, Kevin Tong Illustration, Nucleus, Spoke Art, Hero Complex Gallery, and Mondo. Our friends at Con Rangers have also graduated from Small Press into a regular booth.
We’re also excited about UCC Distributing, Factory Entertainment, Funko, Hasbro (back with only one booth, and we’ve confirmed they’ll be using QR codes again with no physical product on-site), Monogram, the Comic-Con Museum, Toddland, and Monkey Minion. Even after last year’s mega-sized “Funkoville”, for 2023 is Funko is bigger than ever.
Bandai has also gone big again at the con this year, with 11 spaces in total.
Capcom, Blizzard, and Ubisoft (back after skipping last year) can all be found over in the video game section. Missing in action is Nintendo.
Fans of Robotech X and more should head to the Fan Tables, and if you’re a fan of anything, swing through Artist’s Alley to view work from over 130 artists, including Patrick Ballesteros, Priscilla Wilson, Chris Uminga, Joey Spiotto, Karen Hallion, and others. This year’s Small Press section includes booths for over 100 companies like ACME Ink, Val Hochberg, and others.
