“Of course, we’re excited about our celebrity guests. They bring huge crowds because of the franchises they represent, but we never forget this is a comic book convention—that’s our main focus.” Jamie Kautzmann, San Francisco Comic Con
Nayah Sci Fi is excited to bring you real-time coverage of the San Francisco Comic Con (SFCC), September 1 – 3 at the Moscone Center West in downtown San Francisco, CA.
Nayah Sci Fi (@nayahscifi) will be live tweeting throughout the day, and live broadcasting as bandwidth permits. We’ll talk with critically acclaimed comic creators and popular celebrity guests. We’ll also give you an inside view of various events, such as celebrity Q&A’s, exhibitor booths, gaming, and the film festival.
SFCC is a true comic book convention. Imaginarium, the organization behind SFCC, is passionate about comic books and makes sure comic books are the focus.
Jamie Kautzmann, PR spokesperson for SFCC, reiterated this sentiment: “Of course, we’re excited about our celebrity guests. They bring huge crowds because of the franchises they represent, but we never forget this is a comic book convention—that’s our main focus. We’re proud to feature and showcase renowned comic creators like Bruce Tim (DC Universe), Neil Adams (Batman, Superman, Green Arrow), Joyce Chin (Vampirella and Xena: Warrior Princess), and many more.”
In addition to comic books, SFCC features magazines, toys, games, Star Wars, Star Trek, anime, manga, cosplay, artwork, sketches, and apparel.
Of course no comic con is complete without a roster of celebrities to meet and greet attendees. This year’s line up includes Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Summer Glau (Firefly) and Renee O’Connor (Xena: Warrior Princess).
SFCC strives to keep admission costs reasonable for adults and free for children. As an organization that supports science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), Nayah Sci Fi will be sure to cover activities for kids, such as Nerds in Training: Kids Zone. This space has crafts and activities that enrich the convention experience for families with children age 10 and under.
