We all know Bart, Lisa, and Homer all enjoy comic books. And, at Flim Springfield know you, the fans, do too. With that in mind, we believe it is our duty to get you ready for the Annual San Diego Comic-Con, with info about Simpsons-related happenings, as well as a dose of much needed prep on how to navigate the convention itself.
Arrive early! It can take hours just to get through the doors,
and if you don’t already have your tickets you might be out of luck.
In any case, it’ll help you avoid the rush for all the best panels.
The Simpsons will be represented in two official panels this year, on Thursday at 11am in room 9, they’ll be part of the “The Simpsons and SpongeBob Smile-Time Hour”, as well as on Saturday at Noon in Ballroom 20 for the Season 27 preview! Matt Groening, Al Jean, Matt Selman, Mike Anderson, as well as long-time director David Silverman will be in attendance.
If you’re lucky enough to get in, enjoy yourself!
There’ll be news about beloved characters and stories both new and old.
And if you hear bad news about your favorite comic book,
TV show, or movie series . . .
But, in keeping with the past few years, it is tradition to complain
about how Hollywood has co-opted Comic-Con
to the exclusion of actual comics …
Shrug it off! Enjoy the cosplay!
Maybe you’ll even enter a cosplay contest of fashion show!
Nancy Cartwright will be signing Friday the 11th at 10am and again at 2:30 in the Sails Pavilion room AA19. Some castmembers and producers will also be signing at the FOXFANFARE booth on Saturday, times TBD.
And don’t be these guys . . .
Get one-of-a-kind convention sketches of your favorite characters,
