If you’re not going to San Diego Comic-Con, we have one thing to say to you…

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. While thousands of comic book and pop culture fans will soon be descending on San Diego, even more will be watching from home. And if you’re a DC fan, there will be plenty to watch out for. Rebirth, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary, Batman: The Killing Joke, DC’s Young Animal, Supergirl, The Flash and much, much more are all primed to make a massive splash at this summer’s big show.

Fortunately, we’ll be here to make sure you don’t miss a beat. You can look for an updating roundup of coverage right here on DCComics.com all throughout the weekend. While you’re at it, you should also make sure you have the DC All Access app for all of the news on the go. We’ll have a special feed in the app devoted entirely to San Diego Comic-Con. Plus, if you’re going to Comic-Con, the DC All Access app will ensure you don’t miss out on any of the DC panels and signings that you’re interested in.


Super Powered Social Media

For news, photos, videos and can’t-miss moments from the con as they happen, make sure you’re plugged in to us on social media. We’ll be posting regular updates on the DC Facebook page, and you should follow DC on Twitter for announcements, art and imagery from panels, links to breaking news and trailers and behind-the-scenes happenings. Also, for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con, keep an eye out for live Periscopes from the show giving you a “from the floor” look at some of the exhibits and experiences on display. We’ll be making good use of the DC Instagram as well…along with handing the keys over to a few awesome special guests. Make sure you’re following us to discover who they are! Finally, for the first time ever, we’ll also be bringing Comic-Con to the official DC Snapchat. You can find us on Snapchat at DCHQ, or if you prefer, just scan the snapcode below.


DC All Access Brings the Con to You

Of course, it wouldn’t be Comic-Con without DC All Access. Tiffany and Jason will once again be on the scene offering their unique perspective and giving viewers an unrivaled look at all things DC. You can look for DC All Access clips every day of San Diego Comic-Con, so make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube so you don’t miss a minute.

All the Best From SDCC…in An Instant

Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that DC is once again primed to make this San Diego Comic-Con completely unforgettable for one lucky fan…and you don’t even have to be at the show for it to be you. Yes, our Instant Super Fan Sweepstakes has returned for another year, promising to hook up one lucky entrant with a DC prize package that includes all of the DC San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, plus collectibles, toys, books and more. Look for more information on this year’s Instant Super Fan Sweepstakes along with the entry form on Thursday, July 21. Be sure you act quickly, though. This sweepstakes ends when Comic-Con does.

Maybe next year you’ll be able to join us in San Diego. But this year, it’s all right that you’re not at Comic-Con. You have a front row seat for all the excitement…and you don’t even have to leave your living room.
