2016 saw the first – and, for now, only – appearance at the Los Angeles Convention Centre of CCI’s ‘Comic-Con sister event’ WonderCon.
The show was also the first in-person representation of the new video-on-demand service from Comic-Con International and Lionsgate, COMIC-CON HQ, also known as CCHQ.
Staff for the new subscription channel were on-hand to introduce the upcoming features and content to attendees who visited their booth, which featured an Instagram upload booth and a ‘doodle wall’ which featured contributions from professionals and fans alike.
We have two interviews that AEISD secured: firstly, Contributor Dan Berry got some time to talk with Comic-Con HQ‘s VP and General Manager, Seth Laderman, in which they discussed the plans and direction of the content on the service, what CCHQ have in store around San Diego Comic-Con this July and how they plan to develop the community aspect of the service for fans.
We would like to thank Dan for taking the time to set up the interview and sharing with us – fine job, sir!
Then, as part of the 27th March Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea… Google+ Hangout, host Leonard Sultana and co-host Alyssa Franks got to speak to CCHQ’s Director Of Marketing Joe LeFavi about what they have planned for the convention season ahead, including their upcoming representation at this July’s San Diego Comic-Con…
