Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s05e40 (3rd June 2018)
“…are you generous?” “I’m strategic, let’s leave it at that!”
We’re close to the Big Show as you can get, with some amazing announcements coming out of not only Comic-Con International themselves but also all of the companies that you’ll see represented at SDCC. It may be thought that, if you’ve got your badges sorted, there’s no chance of landing that Golden Ticket… but there are some out there that are making it possible to still get in on the Comic-Con action. And with style, too!
Emily Moberly is behind one of the best philanthropic organisations out there, Traveling Stories, a group dedicated to getting children into reading, not only prose but comics, too. In association with San Diego-based IDW Publishing, they are organising a cracking sweepstakes for a second year, which will give a lucky winner an amazing prize of badges, flights and hotels, along with a cache of incredible perks. It’s a hell of a prize!
We invite Emily on to the show to talk about the sweepstake, what it’s taken to organise, and also the relationship Traveling Stories has with the convention. As someone who lives and works in San Diego, we’re also going to be talking to Emily about the relationship the CITY has with the convention, a symbiotic relationship which has an effect on the area beyond those five days in July.
That, all of the weeks SDCC news – including the announcement of the Exclusives Portal – and we’re certain the YouTube live chat will be quite the hive of activity. Take part in the conversation, we hope you can join us live!
