Countdown to Comic-Con: SDCC is in Your Hands (Literally)

Countdown to Comic-Con: SDCC is in Your Hands (Literally)

By Tim Beedle Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Over the past two days, we’ve discussed a few ways you can stay on top of all of the breaking DC Comics news and special features to come out of San Diego Comic-Con from the comfort of your home. But what if you’re going to the show? After all, with over two dozen DC Comics panels alone—to say nothing of the non-stop creator signings and cool stuff taking place in our booth (#1915)—it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

Well, there’s no need for that any more. In fact, we’re putting all of DC Comics and San Diego Comic-Con right in the palm of your hand with our brand new, sparkling (but in a good way), too-awesome-for-words-so-we’re-gonna-bust-out-the-smoke-signals Events App.

 

With a touch of your finger, you can now bring up all of the DC Comics-related SDCC panels, booth signings or off-site events taking place on a given day and flag the ones you’re interested in. You can put together your own custom DC Comics schedule and get reminders when an artist is signing in the DC booth that you’re interested in meeting or when a panel you want to check out is coming up.

 

The app can also help you stay up on what your fellow DC Comics fans are saying in its buzz section. Even better, you can help shape the conversation on Twitter by using the #DCSDCC hashtag when you tweet about DC Comics. Your tweet just may show up in the app’s feed. And it’s not just tweets…

 

If you’re on Instagram and you tag your photos with the #DCSDCC hashtag, your pics could show up in our Events App’s gallery. So use those camera phones often, friends. Your shots could be seen and enjoyed by millions of your fellow fans.

Of course, you don’t have to be at the show to enjoy using our new Events App. The app is also one of the best ways to stay up on all of our exclusive Con Away From Con videos and blog posts, which you can enjoy right from your tablet or smartphone.

You can snag the DC Comics Events App for free for the iOS in the App Store or for Android in Google's Play Store. It’s yet another step in our quest to bring Comic-Con directly to DC Comics fans, whether they’re at the show or at their computer.

And hey, it all starts tomorrow! Remember, keep an eye on DCComics.com all weekend long, and check in to our Con Away From Con page regularly. See you in San Diego!
