No Tickets? No Problem! Come to SAM: Storytelling Across Media

Comic-Con Presents SAM: Storytelling Across Media, Sat., Oct. 26 at the Comic-Con Museum

If you missed out on the chance to register for panels to SAM: Storytelling Across Media, you can still attend this free event in San Diego and participate in all the other activities we have lined up for the day.

Things to do at SAM include:
  • Tabletop gaming demos appropriate for all ages
  • Gaming miniature paint-and-take activity
  • “The Life You Make” exhibit by Funko Founder Mike Becker
  • “The Art of Shag” exhibit
  • Portfolio review with an IDW editor
  • Comic Creator Connection (pending seating availability)
  • Gaming Creator Connection (pending seating availability)

No advanced registration is required for these activities, but they are still limited to seat availability, so come early and bring the whole family! Join the fun on social media by following and using our official hashtag: #SDCCSAM

And if you had your heart set on attending one of our educational panels with industry experts, we will have a standby line for each panel to help us fill empty seats, so you may still get in!

Make sure to hold on to your SAM badge for the evening reception. Following the last panel will be an all-ages reception, free to badged SAM attendees, with light refreshments and a chance to mingle with panelists, guests, and other pop culture enthusiasts.
