Official Press Release
Comic Book Resources, the most popular and trusted website for news and commentary on all aspects of comic books and comics culture, today announces its plans for this year's Comic-Con International in San Diego. Along with the industry's most thorough primary reporting of the comic book industry, Comic Book Resources provides comprehensive coverage of the many movie, TV and video game adaptations through its main site and network of blogs. Throughout the first half of 2015, Comic Book Resources has seen its highest traffic to date, reaching 8.5 million readers in the month of May alone.
Over the course of Comic-Con 2015 -- the biggest annual event for pop culture fans, running July 8-12 -- Comic Book Resources will reveal exclusive news from major publishers, provide live coverage from the convention's top panels and deliver the show's latest major headlines.
"The continued domination of comics in pop culture doesn't surprise me at all," said Comic Book Resources Executive Producer Jonah Weiland. "Pop Culture is now Comics Culture and I'm overjoyed to see how the mainstream embraces what we've know is the greatest creative medium of all time! With 16 years of covering Comic-Con - and our ninth year with the CBR Yacht - we're looking forward to the excitement and surprises of this year's show."
During the show, CBR will be headquartered in its traditional location on a 60' yacht docked at the marina directly behind the San Diego Convention Center, where the CBR News team will conduct video interviews in its floating Tiki Room throughout the weekend with the biggest names in comics, movies and TV.
Publicists interested in bringing talent to the yacht for interviews or are interested in setting up stories during the show, please email CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland.
A limited number of Comic-Con sponsorship packages are still available. If you're interested in advertising on CBR during our biggest traffic weekend of the year, contact email@example.com.
Journalists are welcome to contact Comic Book Resources prior to the event, to check in on the action at CBR's floating newsroom and studio.
