A Little Information from Arcana Comics About What’s in Store for Comic-Con 2012

We are just a few weeks away from our BIGGEST San Diego Comic-Con ever, including loads of announcements. We’ll give you a tease of some of those things in just a couple of weeks, but for right now, we’ll just warn you, they’re AWESOME! Arcana Comics is delving into new imprints, a load of new titles, and some partnerships with some pretty spectacular people. You’ll see… just keep on reading these newsletters.

As promised… At SDCC this year, we’re going to have some great exclusives in limited quantities, so be sure to head to our booth, #2415, to find out what we have! In the next week or so, all of the Exclusives should be listed on the SDCC web site as well, so you can check there. It’s going to be a good year!

Around 50 creators from Arcana are making the trip to San Diego this year and will be appearing from Wednesday night through Sunday afternoon to meet fans, sign autographs, and show off their books. Be sure to show them some love by showing up! The official signing schedule will be sent out soon, too!

Arcana Comics will also be debuting dozens of titles still months away from official release. Come to our booth and you’ll get to read full graphic novels before anyone else!

Arcana Comics Announces 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Plans

If you’re going to be in the San Diego area in July, most likely you’re there for San Diego Comic-Con 2011. While you’re there, be sure to stop by booth 2415 to see what all of the excitement is about at Arcana Comics. We have some spectacular signings planned, SDCC Exclusives (a Kade Art Book and the SDCC Launch Edition of SideShows), and even an Arcana Comics Panel! Below is a run-down of what we’re up to.

EXCLUSIVES:

SIDESHOWS SDCC LAUNCH EDITION: SideShows, the next Arcana hit by Erik Hendrix & Michael Nelsen is still months away from official release, but you can see it here first! It’s 1950’s Las Vegas & the mob enlisted former circus attractions as their aces in the hole. These SideShows had a little secret — they really did have the abilities they pretended to. High rollers, lounge singers, cigarettes, alcohol, and superpowers. Welcome to Las Vegas. Packed with extras not available in the retail version and limited to 100 copies!
