Twitter Tips: Companies to Follow During Comic-Con

Here are some of our favorite exhibitors and properties to help give the edge on giveaways and SDCC news:

@AgentsofSHIELD: Although the shadow of D23 Expo looms large over this year’s SDCC, we’re still betting on some excitement from this soon-to-be hit show at Comic-Con.

@BBCAmerica: Each year Doctor Who gets bigger at SDCC and with the additions of properties like Orphan Black and their team-up with Chris Hardwick, you can be sure they’ll be the home of some big SDCC news.

@CBSatComicCon: Don’t you love it when companies have Twitter accounts specifically for SDCC? We do, and that’s why this is one of our favorites.

@Comic_Con: Do we need to give an explanation? These are the people who bring us the event we love the most. Who doesn’t already follow @Comic_Con?

@CW_Network: We’re “all in” on some big DC announcements for this year’s SDCC, and it seems like the home of last year’s SDCC hit, Arrow is a good place to start.

@DCComics: Always rich with giveaways and panels. As we said earlier- expect lots from DC at SDCC.

@FEARnet: One of the biggest provider of screams in the US, you can be sure that this will be the home of big horror news throughout Comic-Con.

@HasbroNews: Can they top the Star Wars Death Star exclusive? Well, an Avenger Helicarrier that’s larger than most children is one way to try. We can’t wait what they have in store for this year.

@ImageComics: The third-largest comics publisher in the US, follow them for booth signings, giveaways and special events. [Thanks @HGFantomas]

@Legendary: Word on the Comic-Con street is that Legendary will have an even bigger presence than they have had in the past. Make sure to follow this account, so that you’re not surprised by any missed opportunities.

@Marvel: What is the next step for the Marvel dynasty? Follow and find out. They also announce their booth events and giveaways via Twitter throughout the con, so this one is essential.

@MattyCollector: Like Hasbro, Mattel is bringing a ton of exclusives, so follow them for updates.

@MondoNews: Mondo’s limited posters are highly sought-after, so stay on top of the drops during SDCC by following their Twitter account for announcements. [Thanks, @SDCCnerdsattack]

@MTVGeek: When MTV went to San Diego Comic-Con a few years back, there was no going back. Now, with this twitter handle as the home of all geeky info, they are one of the more comprehensive entities on the SDCC floor.

@Nerdist: Is there anyone who loves SDCC more than Chris Hardwick? Is there anyone that SDCC loves more than Chris Hardwick?

@Retro_Outlaw: Retro Outlaw is one of the best kept secrets of SDCC. If you’re a fan of Clockwork Orange, Planet of the Apes, movie monsters, Star Trek, or Star Wars, make sure to check them out.

@SDConventionCtr: Where better to get Comic-Con organizational news than the people who own the house?

@SkyboundEnt: Home of Robert Kirkman’s creator-owned projects including The Walking Dead and Thief of Thieves and Super Dinosaur. [Thanks @HGFantomas]

@Slashfilm: Peter Sciretta and crew provide the very best coverage of all things film at SDCC. Follow them for all the big Hall H announcements as they happen.

@SonyPictures: What will Sony do to match the excitement of their competing super hero empires? Follow this account to keep up on its plans.

@WarnerBlu: The home of Warner Bros. Blu-Ray is known to be a player in the SDCC market, and with all that we expect from Warner Bros. this year, they are a must follow.

@TheWBDotCom: Consistently the most audacious, and swag-heavy, of the SDCC booths, Twitter might be your only chance of ever finding the end of its infamous lines.
