This year’s San Diego Comic Con International was filled with great photos, great meetings, great cosplayers, and great fans! It is always exciting to see our supporters in person and talk about the things they love with them. Here are the highlights of Insight Editions’ trip down to San Diego last week.
The Walking Dead
Our CEO Raoul Goff and Executive Editor Vanessa Lopez got to meet the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Cast members Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee), and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) got first looks at our Walking Dead Pop-Up Book.
Comic Con Meetings
We look forward to Comic Con each year for the chance to meet with our partners and licensors. Raoul Goff met with legendary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. Author of Shadowline, Iain McCaig got to talk with Stan Lee, himself. Raoul Goff and Acquisitions Manager Robbie Schmidt met with Back to the Future writer/producer Bob Gale in front of a recreation of the iconic clock. Everyone enjoyed Sideshow Collectible’s party, which had front-row seats to a live fireworks show.
A big thank you to all our authors, illustrators, and contributors who signed books during Comic Con! We hope everyone enjoyed getting the opportunity to talk directly with the creators of these gorgeous books. We even had a surprise visit from Daniel Wallace, author of DC Comics: Super-Villains and the up-coming Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History.
What would Comic Con be without the fans? We loved talking with all of you and especially loved the range of diversity of costumes everyone wore.
We hope to see you all next year!
