Third Time’s The Charm

It just keeps getting bigger and more beautiful. Click through, then click "Next" to follow the epic story of #buttrocket.

When Jeph comes back from his vacation (and happy birthday, Jeph!), I hope to hell that QC becomes all #buttrocket, all the time. Add Christopher Baldwin to the list of awesomest people ever (which presently consists of KB Spangler and Zach Weinersmith).

Who wants to see the floor map for this year’s San Diego Comic Con? Well too bad, because you’re gonna, mister. As usual, you can download the entire thing [PDF], or browse around below for the guide to Webcomics and the Webcomics-Adjacent. If you’ve been before, people that you want to see are mostly in the same places as past years. As always, if there are corrections or additional detail, I will post as I receive them and update here.

As in past years, the floor divides roughly in half where the hall bends about 15° clockwise. Also as in past years, we’ll consider those halves separately.

The Low Numbers
Let’s start over to the right side of the map, which is the side of the building away from the stadium parking lot where so much offsite stuff will be found. It looks like this:

The Webcomics, Small Press, and Independent Press Pavilions are all reasonably accessible from the “B” lobby. Let’s break ’em down.

The Sexy Lagoon
Centered roughly on booth #1332, you’ll find a majority of the webcomickers who will be at the show within about a 1.5 aisle radius; some are slightly outside the orange area, but not too far.

Two Lumps Booth 1230


  • Blank Label is the increasingly-disused name for Willis, Spike, and whoever’s sharing space this year, and if I heard correctly Spike won’t be there this time.
  • The biggest bummer about not attending this year will be missing out on seeing my good friends at Dumbrella, who provide me refuge from the floor each year.
  • There’s always a rotating roster at TopatoCo; we’ll let you know who’s gonna be there as we become definitively aware.
  • Penny Arcade and Blind Ferret have opted out of SDCC; as giving up your booth means waiting a hell of a long time to get another one, this is likely permanent. Correction: Blind Ferret will be attending, but under the Comic Bento name; we’ve noted their inclusion above.

Small Press Is The Best Press
Right by the Webcomics section is Small Press. Here you should find:

Bob the Angry Flower    Table K-16
Ben Costa Table O-07
Keith Knight Table K-15
Kel McDonald Table M-13
Wire Heads Table M-01

From the Small Press section, you’re close by:

Cartoon Art Musuem    Booth 1930
CBLDF Booth 1918
BOOM! Booth 2229
Oni Press Booth 1833
Gallery Nucleus Booth 2643


  • Gallery Nucleus will feature arty types when they aren’t hanging out at Mondo down in booth 835. Keep an eye out for your Scotts C, your Beckys and/or Franks, and alumni of the various Flight anthologies.
  • No confirmation yet on which webcomickers will be at the BOOM! booth when, but I’d expect a pretty strong rotation.
  • A San Diego without Keith Knight is weird, man.

Now head back toward the “B” Lobby into the Independent Press area and you’ll find the area where Unshelved and Axe Cop used to be. Jeff Smith’s totally a webcomicker these days, though — you’ll find him sharing space with the incomparably good Terry Moore at Booth 2109.

Going back to that larger map of the northern half of the exhibit hall. Wedged in between the Marvel and Image megabooths you’ll find Keenspot in Booth 2635.

High Numbers
There’s still some neat stuff if you keep wandering past the video games, Star Wars, Legos, and suchlike.

Give yourself half an hour or so, try not to spend all your money on Copic markers (Booth 5338), and you’ll find both Udon Entertainment (home of such worthies as Christopher Butcher and Jim Zub at Booth 4529); and The Hero Initiative (at Booth 5003). Zub’s Skullkickers cohort, Edwin Huang will be in the Artists Alley at table DD-14, and Katie Cook will be at table HH-17.

The offsite components of SDCC just keep growing year after year; the massive parking lots by the stadium and the north end of the Gaslamp, and the field by the Hilton, are likely to host enough to keep you busy whole days.
