San Diego Comic-Con International, or SDCC, originally started in 1970, and the annual entertainment and comics convention is still going strong 46 years later. As one of the largest—if not the largest—conventions of its kind, people flock to SDCC to see celebrities, get the latest on their favorite TV shows or movies, revel in fantastic cosplaying and, of course, to purchase the coolest pop culture swag and comics from talented artists. You can find Comic-Con International’s 2016 Guidebook and Exhibit Hall Map below, and easily access it from your phone with our mobile apps while at the show.

Keep scrolling and see what you should look forward to at SDCC this year.

1. IDW Publishing

IDW Publishing publishes some of the biggest comic book titles around and always makes an appearance at SDCC. Fans can get special variants (limited comics with unique cover art) at SDCC, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #60, which will be one of the titles available for purchase.

2. Star Trek

Star Trek’s Simon Pegg covers Den of Geek’s latest publication and, as one of the biggest film titles presenting this year, Star Trek already opened the convention with an IMAX screening of the upcoming movie, a fireworks show and star-studded red carpet. It doesn’t hurt that the franchise is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, so prepare for more Star Trek at SDCC and for the rest of the year.

3. Cosplay

BHP Comics goes deeper into cosplay culture with interviews and a look back at the art from the first three years of the Glasgow Comic Con, which also holds a best cosplay competition. Cosplay is a big fixture at any comic convention, so we’re excited to see what SDCC has in store!

These are just a few highlights we’re looking forward to from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International. Tweet @issuu as you walk through the halls at SDCC this year, and remember you can always pull up the exhibit hall map through one of our apps if you get lost! Here’s the link again.
