Dark Horse In-Booth Signing Schedule

All creators signing in our booth offer their autographs for FREE. FREE prints, comics, or posters are provided for most of our signings (while supplies last). You may purchase or bring items to be signed; however, we may restrict the type or number of items to be signed as necessary.

Some signings require a wristband for entry, as noted on the schedule. Drawings for wristbands for these events will begin at show opening the day before and day of each signing. Come to the Dark Horse booth early for the best chance to join these events. Lines may also be closed for some signings due to crowding or time restrictions.

We have two signing stages. One is the Dark Horse stage; the other showcases Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch with art from the Overwatch: Anthology Volume 1. The location of each signing is indicated by the following abbreviations:

DH = Dark Horse Signing Stage  OW = Overwatch Signing Stage

All events are subject to change. Some restrictions apply. Please see Dark Horse Comics staff if you have questions.
