Event description
A Special One-Day Symposium • Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA

About this Event

Comic-Con presents SAM: Storytelling Across Media on Saturday, October 26, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the future site of the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park, San Diego. 

Things to do at this free one-day symposium include panels from comics greats Jim Lee and Kevin Eastman, kid-friendly activities, and networking events for anyone interested in a career in storytelling. 

Seating for panels is limited, so advanced registration* from this platform is encouraged.

SAM is not a traditional comics convention. There is no exhibit hall. Through a series of panels, lectures, and workshops, SAM explores what’s similar and what’s different about telling stories in comics, film, television, costuming, wrestling, board games, video games, and other media. 

*You are not required to register for a panel to attend this free event. Visit Comic-Con.org/SAM to learn how to participate in our non-panel events.

Included with each panel ticket:

  • Admission for you to the Comic-Con Museum during SAM: Storytelling Across Media.

  • Guaranteed seat to the registered panel when you scan your ticket at least 5 minutes before the panel’s start time.

  • Ability to participate in a gaming miniature paint-and-take activity, tabletop gaming demos, and portfolio reviews with IDW Publishing as space allows.

  • Access to the SAM 2019 Reception from 6:00–9:00 PM, which will include light, complimentary refreshments. 


Visit Comic-Con.org/SAM for full event information.
