Default Denver Comic Con Again

I'll be attending DCC once again and have a speed pass as well. If anyone is interested in my "muling" services, please shoot me a PM. I don't ask for any sort of fee to help out just so that's out there.

Guest list here: Guests

And with 3 months to go, there will be a few more added along with a few cancellations too. They just announced Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie yesterday to add to Robin Lord Taylor from Gotham. That along with Dushku, Landau, Marsters, and Day from Buffy makes for a solid lineup right now. Pretty good mix of folks at the moment to be honest.

Having never been to any of these things before how does it work, do they all charge for autos? Will they sign anything (within reason obviously) i.e. if I got some custom cards made would they sign them or do they have restrictions on not signing certain things due to copyright etc?

At the conventions, there is generally an entire area for the autographs. The celebrities have booths; and yes, they all charge for the autographs. The prices range from celeb to celeb.

They will generally sign anything within reason. Lots of collectors make custom cards to get signed. If you dont have anything specific that you want to get signed, each celebrity has 8x10 photos at their booth.

If you have your own item, they will sign that. If you dont, the 8x10 photo is generally included in the autograph price. On a RARE occasion, the photos they provide cost extra.

Sometimes they can personalize the autographs, depending on who the celeb is, and how much time they have available.

yeah I'm loving the lineup so far and hoping the Justice League: Animated Series Reunion is still a go since Rosenbaum was the first announced and he has been the main one missing when the rest are at different cons.

I'll definitely be watching this thread / the con website for updates Thank you.

I'm interested in getting a Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things) auto and a Michael Rosenbaum (Impastor) auto, depending on how much they charge at the cons. Does Denver Comic Con generally put prices on the website when the con nears closer?

Yes, they do a great job of posting auto prices on the website. Probably see them go up around April/May from what I remember.

Got an email announcing that Nathan Fillion is coming to DCC. Also said autograph prices should be up around 8 weeks prior to the con. So late April/early May.

Yeah kicking myself even more now for not grabbing that Full Size Firefly Poster the year before when Tudyk/Staite were here. Was still in my "8x10s are fine" phase. Ugh

Guess I'll just have him sign one of my Castle items

Staite and Tudyk do plenty of cons. Just start the poster with Fillion snd add them next time around. A cast signed Firefly poster id way cooler than anything Castle.

Yeah they do plenty of cons but it's more, how long am I going to have to wait for them to come back here and the whole money spent already on them. Cause I'm not hauling posters around the country

I'm not a huge fan of autographed 8x10s, but cast signed posters are something I would be interested in. I'm always afraid to start though, because I will super annoyed if I can't finish all the sigs I want. I have some posters I've collected over the years, but never attempted to get any signed because of that. Just my one Dr. Whow art piece that only needs one more sig.

Celebrity Guests: Days Appearing and Pricing

Autograph prices are up. I really enjoyed Stranger Things, but their pricing is out to lunch (my opinion). Morena Baccarin or Millie Bobby Brown for $50? Easy choice.

Everyone else is pretty much where I was guessing they would be.

yeah the pricing made a few decisions for me and helped whittle down my priorities.

Now to wait and see, who gets added and who cancels *crosses fingers no one I want lol*

Yeah that blows so far only people announced since their cancellation is the combo of James & Oliver Phelps (Fred & George Weasley from Harry Potter) which is cool since Bonnie Wright will be here too but IMO doesn't equal losing those two.

Looking over the complete guest list, while solid it's not as good as 2014 or last year's list. Seems like DCC is banking hard on Defenders & Stranger Things.

Bonnie Wright and Graham McTavish canceled on Friday. Replaced by Ryan Hurst so far.

I'm very non-plussed by the remaining lineup. They have three weeks to make me happy. I have my doubts.

I'll be flying in from MN. I'm really excited to meet Colin Cantwell although I'm having a hard time finding something unique to be signed...

Ryan Hurst is cool but yeah while there are still some quality guests, it's a step down from past couple years. Actually I'm more excited for Colorado Springs Con 2nd year

Especially last year. Lena Headey and Dean Morgan along with a bunch of Gotham, Stan Lee, and a number of others? Not even close.

The Springs line-up looks really good actually. Like too good.
