Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive
Comic-Con’s Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive returns for its 43rd massive year in 2019 with a 5-day drive.

Our blood drive is San Diego Blood Bank’s largest and longest-running event: last year we collected 2,804 pints of blood over our 4-day convention, our biggest year ever.

The growth of our blood drive over the years has been phenomenal. The Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive began at San Diego Comic-Con back in 1977. That first year, 148 pints of blood were collected, and as the convention has grown, so has our blood drive. Over the past 42 years 22,607 pints of blood have been donated by Comic-Con attendees! San Diego Blood Bank estimates that our 42-year total has saved more than 67 thousand lives!!

This year blood donors will receive a free Avengers: End Game tee shirt and other goodies.
PLUS, donors are also entered into daily drawings for many fantastic prizes donated by Exhibitors, Professionals, and Staff.

You're Wrong, Leonard Maltin
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”—Harlan Ellison. Film critic Leonard Maltin is the ultimate movie fan and his reviews are legendary. But . . . are they “right”? In the spirit of kindness and with the communal understanding that film is subjective and opinions come in all colors of the rainbow, “You're Wrong, Leonard Maltin” gives audience members a rare opportunity to challenge the movie master himself on his categorical cinematic conclusions. It's a conversation between battling beliefs . . . and possibly the only chance you will ever get in your life to convince Leonard Maltin that his movie methodology is mortally mistaken and, in fact, WRONG. Perhaps best known for his eponymous annual book of movie capsule reviews, Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, which was published from 1969 to 2014, Leonard and his daughter Jessie Maltin, who together host the Maltin on Movies podcast, are willing to take on all comers who have a gripe over one of Leonard's reviews. Marquess of Queensbury rules will be enforced, but anyone who wants to have a lively discussion is welcome to spar (verbally) with America's best-known film critic.

Comics Arts Conference Session #4: What Women Want: Agency, Desire, and Community in Comics
Sydney Heifler (The University of Oxford) uses the historical treatment of romance comics as a case study of how both individual and collective memory affect the historiography of Western comics. Kathleen McClancy (Texas State University) examines how The Coldest City and Velvet engage with Cold War nostalgia to challenge the idea that either espionage or comics themselves were ever just for men. Sam Langsdale (University of North Texas) argues that Marvel's America queers normative depictions of mainstream superheroes to reevaluate what qualities make a superhero admirable in nonnormative, and thus ultimately more inclusive, ways.

Cast and executive producers will present a first look at the pilot episode of ABC's new drama series Emergence, followed by a panel discussion. This character-driven genre thriller follows a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child's identity is at the center of it all. Panel participants include executive producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters with cast members Allison Tolman, Donald Faison, Clancy Brown, Alexa Swinton, Owain Yeoman, Ashley Aufderheide, Robert Bailey Jr., and Zabryna Guevara.

Fair Use and Fan Engagement
WatchMojo leverages its relationships, copyright law, and common sense to build a business reaching 100 million unique viewers around the fair use doctrine and exception. With technology having radically redrawn the landscape and consumer behavior blowing the lid off traditional production and distribution models, it seems like the law and business practices have not yet caught up. Where does this leave fan engagement? In a future where everyone is a content creator, curator, and distributor of sorts, how open should the investors and creators of original intellectual property be? After all, Game of Thrones was one of the most pirated series ever, yet it also went on to become one of the most successful ever. HBO's decision to embrace its fan base spawned thousands of fan communities, series etc. which further propelled the franchise to global domination. In this discussion, WatchMojo founder Ashkan Karbasfrooshan brings a diverse set of perspectives on both sides of the debate to determine where the balance is between protecting rights holders versus the biggest proponents of fair use.

For another creator, this might seem to be enough for any career, but Neal is back setting new standards, new directions, and new technology for the future of comics. To quote Neal, ”Back then, we were living in the Stone Age, and it was enough to do to bring comics into the 20th century. Now is the time to bring comics into the future. What is the future? I'm about to tell you.” A big order even for Neal Adams, but he will give you chapter and verse of where comics are going, and it's definitely an incredible place to go.

Higher, Further, Faster. Are We There Yet?
Female superheroes are finally getting their due on screen and reigning at the box office. Star Wars now centers on a female Jedi, Black Panther brought a dynamic array of female characters to the MCU, and there is the first female Doctor since the character's 1963 debut. Women-owned companies like Jordandené and subscription boxes like FanMail provide female-fan-forward fashion and merchandising opportunities that didn't exist a decade ago. Online commentary from sites like SYFYFangrrls, fangirl-run podcasts, and events like GeekGirlCon continue to successfully challenge the notion that fandom is a male-dominated space. So why are women still having to prove themselves as consumers and community members, as well as pop culture enthusiasts and producers? Why has the “fake geek girl” myth persisted? Join Jennifer K. Stuller (Ink-Stained Amazon; co-founder GeekGirlCon), Suzanne Scott (UT Austin, Fake Geek Girls), Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex, Shadow of the Batgirl), Britta Lundin (Ship It, Riverdale), Rose Del Vecchio (FanMail), and Rebecca M. Davis (NW POC Geeks; Nerdlesque MC; GeekGirlCon), and C. B. Lee (Not Your Sidekick; Not Your Villain) as they punch holes in the sky for a dynamic, inquisitive, compassionate, community-building discussion exploring how far they've come culturally as female fans, struggles they still face as cultural critics and culture makers—and ways for us all to go higher, further, and much much faster.

Horror Times Two: Critters Attack! and The Banana Splits Movie
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings a double dip of upcoming horror films in Critters Attack! and The Banana Splits Movie (both produced by Blue Ribbon Content in conjunction with SYFY). Inspired by the film series from the '80s and '90s, Critters Attack! follows 20-year-old Drea (Tashiana Washington), who reluctantly takes a job babysitting for a professor of a college she hopes to attend. Struggling to entertain the professor's children along with her own little brother, Drea takes them on a hike, unaware that mysterious alien critters have crash-landed and started devouring every living thing they encounter. Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), who starred in the original Critters as Helen Brown and returns to the franchise in the mysterious role of Aunt Dee, and Tashiana Washington (Shaft, Gimme Shelter) will be on the panel alongside director Bobby Miller (The Cleanse), Critters puppeteer Keith Arbuthnot (Eureka, The Cabin in the Woods), voice of the Critters Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop), and Blue Ribbons' Peter Girardi. The Banana Splits Movie offers a new take on the classic characters from the late 1960s The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program. In the horror thriller, a boy named Harley and his family go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley. But things take an unexpected turn—and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom, and their new pals safely escape? Panelists include writers Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas (Raven's Home, My Super Psycho Sweet 16), actor Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries), Blue Ribbon's Peter Girardi, and the voice of the Banana Splits, Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons). Critters Attack! lands on Earth on July 23 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital. The Banana Splits Movie comes to Digital on August 13 and Blu-ray and DVD on August 27.
