The big week has finally begun. As you make your final plans for the convention (picking out the panels you want to hit up, highlighting the booths you will visit on your map, and whose signatures you will be hunting for), make sure you take note of the Archaia Entertainment booth’s location.
We are in booth #2635, located on the east side of the Exhibit Hall. You can find the full map on SDCC’s website.
Also, don’t leave home without reading our signing schedule to know when Archaia creators, artists, and writers will be there.
And of course, take note of our panels:
