NYCC 2014: Dark Horse Schedule Brings Legend Of Korra, Star Wars Creators For Free Autograph Signings, Con Exclusives
Today, Dark Horse Comics released its entire lineup of comics creators and other geek-friendly guests that will be offering free autograph signings throughout New York Comic Con weekend.
Some of the heavy hitters of Dark Horse's lineup include Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko on Friday, a whole collection of Star Wars comics creators on Saturday and Jessie Flower, voice of Avatar's Toph, on Sunday. The lineup is so packed that Dark Horse will be running two autograph booths simultaneously, so make sure you know which one your target autographer is stationed at.
Most of Dark Horse's autographing lineup consists, unsurprisingly, of comic creators, which sets fans up for the opportunity to get their favorite book signed by a collection of people who had a hand in making it. For those who don't dive too heavily into the comics scene, there are still many notable franchises – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Plants vs. Zombies, EVE Online and Halo, to name a few – that Dark Horse has turned into comics over the years and that will be represented at their tables.
You can check out a full list of who will be at NYCC over on Dark Horse's website.
Dark Horse also has a couple of panels in the works for all four days of the con. The information for all of these panels can be found at the same link.
Beyond bringing a collection of comic creators for some free signatures, Dark Horse will also have a store of limited edition, some con-exclusive, goodies for sale. From a figurine of Aang's statue from Legend of Korra to Game of Thrones dragon figures to the limited edition Art of Naughty Dog book, Dark Horse is making sure congoers with disposable income to spend don't go home empty-handed. The information on all of Dark Horse's wares can be found here. Act quickly when you get there, though. Many of these items only have a limited supply.
NYCC 2014 will kick off in less than a week on October 9. Make sure to keep up with our continuing coverage of the big event.
