Wondercon and San Diego Comic-Con handles their signing tables a bit differently. In case you haven’t noticed, the “pay-for” autograph tables have dwindled in numbers quite a bit these past few years. According to CCI (the organizers of Wondercon and Comic-Con), they’re trying to phase out these “pay-for-autograph” tables…. you’ll still see some, but those have been grandfathered in. Vendors, also, have the option to include autograph sessions at their booths and can still charge.
HOWEVER, for the rest of the celebrity guests, autographs–from what we understand–are free! I’m not really sure how this setup works, and how these celebs get compensated for their time (unless they have studio backing), but hey–sign up now for your chance to get your autographs. Here’s the message from CCI:
