So does anyone know about the walking dead signing if it's at the booth it's legit the only only autograph I really want this year
Yeah, it's a the booth and really hard to get. All day Thursday you can draw for a ticket at the booth. Just getting into that line is very hard as it is always capped. Once in chances of drawing a winning ticket are very slim. Waaaaaaayyyy more losing tickets than winners. When you lose, they have you put your loser back in the bag too so the odds just get worse and worse. I've never won, ever. Last year a friend did though and that was exciting!

TWD drawing is throughout the day. Not first thing in the AM.

The past few years, the walking dead autograph raffle was done by going through the booth or scene they had set up.
The line is against a wall and it is capped.
But once you get in line and brought to the booth, You do 'x' and then they let you pull a ticket for the signing.
Last year, I think you posed with the group as they knelt in front of negan.
It is not a quick process. And as people mentioned, it has a low success rate.
Good luck.

Can you go through more than once if you don't draw a winner and are willing to wait? I'm doing EE line just to get that few minutes before the main doors open, LOL.

We've done this drawing for the last few years with no success but it's fun to just go thru what AMC has set up. Line is always capped so you've to got to be quick when line opens up.

You can go through the line multiple times.
Good luck.

I am like a huge fan of the TV show LUCIFER ...... I saw the signing is at WB on Saturday. I have NEVER EVER got in line or tried my luck with autographs, any tips/tricks what to do and when and where to line up for that? I cant imagine that there are too many people wanting an autograph or is it the same situation and I have to get in line at 4am? HELP.

Thank you :)

If you get in line at 4am you probably have no chance to even attempt to draw a ticket. But I could be wrong.

Sorry to go back to this, but can we talk about Gotham :) what does that mean that they could be at both Fox and WB? Saturday morning where should I go to try and win a wrist band?? Sails Pavilion or to one of the booths? It says this:

WARNER BROS – Booth #4545 
*WBTVG follows Comic-Con’s ticket drawing/wristband distribution procedure for all signings. All ticket drawings and wristband distributions will take place in the morning of the day of the specific signing at the Sails Pavilion floor, between Ballroom 20 and Rooms 6A, 6BCF and 6DE.*

This makes it seem like to get Gotham autograph I need to go to Sails.....Please help!

If it's at Fox or WB the drawing lines are right next to each other in Sails. You just choose which line to wait in.
But if you go to both booths before Saturday they will give you the signing schedule

I'm trying for Gotham too. Maybe we can be line buddies? So maybe we could get to the panel too, but it seems unlikely since Gotham is the third in the signing schedule (no time has been posted) and the panel is in the middle of the day :(

Was at Indigo today and confirmed that Vikings cast is staying there again this year.  Expect a post Vikings funeral cast party of some sort.  Also in past years on Thursday night when the cast first comes in - they have hung out at the rooftop bar and been very kind to fans.  Maybe not an autograph line- but a chance to have a beer and a conversation.  Of course - there are never guarantees, but if you are looking for something to do - post convention on Thursday- or Friday, it could be worth it.
