BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW!
Did you know you can skip a line this year by getting tickets mailed to you? Not only that, but customers who have their badge may enter via the North Plaza entrance and don't have to use the South Plaza (Main Entrance).

You'll still need to go through security, but skipping the badge pick up line is a massive time saver!

We've made lots of other changes to this years show like more security to get people in quicker, we took over the entire convention center to increase parking space and more... but getting your badge mailed to you is by far the quickest way for you to get in. You will skip an entire line, and we, like you, hate lines.
That's right, all you have to do is buy your tickets in advance and you get your very own Jetpack Jules print featuring art by the amazing Amanda Conner with colors by Paul Mounts. You can't buy this print anywhere so if you want yours you have to order your tickets in advance.

Not only will you get this awesome print FREE but you'll also save money on each ticket as prices are higher at the door than in advance. AND, last but not least, you will be get onto the show floor up to an hour early each day! Like we said, buying your tickets early is a win win!

With so many great reasons to buy your tickets early for Comic Con Revolution what are you waiting for?

Doubleday Books Publishes The First Ever Graphic Novel Adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale

Doubleday Books To Publish Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale Graphic Novel
Art & Adaptation by Renée Nault

Originally published in 1985, Margaret Atwood’s novel THE HANDMAID’S TALE is a seminal work of fiction: influential and inspirational, provocative and prophetic. The book’s taut prose and unforgettable characters have been adapted into a major motion picture starring Natasha Richardson and Faye Dunaway, a radio play, a stage play, an opera, and, most recently, Hulu’s Emmy Award-winning show starring Elisabeth Moss. Now, on March 26, 2019, Doubleday Books will publish the first ever graphic novel adaptation of THE HANDMAID’S TALE.

THE HANDMAID’S TALE Graphic Novel features the art of Renée Nault a Canadian artist and frequent illustrator for the Los Angeles Times — who was hand-selected by Atwood to adapt her seminal novel. Nault tells the iconic story of Offred and the Republic of Gilead over the course of 240 full-color  pages. Her watercolor illustrations, which took her over two years to complete from initial sketches to final pages, are gorgeous and haunting.  

And Atwood herself is no stranger to the world of comics and graphic novels. ANGEL CATBIRD, written by Atwood and illustrated by Johnnie Christmas and Tamra Bonvillian, was the author’s first ever New York Times # 1 bestseller in 2016.

THE HANDMAID’S TALE has long been a global phenomenon. With this stunning graphic novel adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s modern classic, beautifully realized by artist Renée Nault, the terrifying reality of Gilead has been brought to vivid life like never before. Like the Booker Award-winning novel it adapts, THE HANDMAID’S TALE Graphic Novel is worthy of widespread attention and discussion.

About Margaret Atwood: Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in over forty-five countries, is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, critical essays and graphic novels. In addition to The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning TV series, her novels include Cat’s Eye, shortlisted for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; The MaddAddam Trilogy; and Hag-Seed. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award. She lives in Toronto with the writer Graeme Gibson.

About Renée Nault: Renée Nault is a Canadian artist, illustrator, and graphic novelist known for her vivid watercolor and ink illustrations. Her work has appeared in books, magazines,newspapers, and advertising around the world. She is a frequent illustrator for the Los Angeles Times. Please visit www.reneenault.com.
