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 the 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.

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

JAPAN’S MANGA MAGAZINE: WHERE YOUR MANGA GETS STARTED! (Anime Fest – Mirai Stage)

Almost every manga Dark Horse has published came from a Japanese magazine; this is also true of the other US manga publishers. These magazines are to manga in Japan what monthly comic books are to comics in the US—they’re the place readers get the story first, before it gets collected as a trade paperback. But since manga gets released in the US straight to trade paperback, we never get to see manga as the original Japanese readers do. Join Carl Horn as he gives fans a tour of the over 20 different Japanese magazines, including what some Dark Horse stories looked like when they were first published, what kind of ads ran in them, what the cover art was like, and more!

7:30 PM–9:30 PM:

NETFLIX & CHILLS (Main Stage 1D)

The midnight hour is close at hand with Netflix’s Mega Block of chills, thrills, and everything else of the other-worldly variety. Join the casts of Umbrella Academy, The Haunting of Hill House and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as they descend upon New York Comic Con to discuss these highly anticipated new series. Plus, get a first look at The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance before anyone else. The conversations will leave you sleeping with the lights on and texting your friends about the surprises along the way!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6

1:45 PM–2:45 PM:

THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY INVITES YOU TO CHECK IN TO “HOTEL OBLIVION” (Room 1A06)
