It’s hard to believe the last day of New York Comic Con (NYCC) was one month ago, today. NYCC is one of the biggest comic book conventions of the year, and similar to years past, this year’s event came with a heap of awesome SWAG!
Over the next few posts, I’ll be reflecting on some of the SWAG experiences NYCC had to offer…
The first significant SWAG opportunity of NYCC was at the DC Universe premier of their initial original online content offering, Titans (humbly covered by me on Comicon.com).
At the event, general attendees were treated to soda and popcorn, served in bags branded with stickers displaying the Titans logo.
As a container for perishables, that most likely eventually found its way into the trash, the bag isn’t necessarily marketing at its best, yet it was a nice way to create good vibes associated with DCU and the Titans show. But it was the SWAG provided to the invited guests that may have been the true SWAG prize of the night…
Though the actual item couldn’t be made-out from the general attendees seats (see pic above), it could be seen that invited guests were provided with an item resembling a comic book, as a memento of their night at the premier.
The item may possibly be the same Titans comic that was passed-out to NYCC attendees at the DC Entertainment Booth, throughout the four days of the convention?*. But it was difficult to make-out the cover image. Seeing as no other item advertised as being “obtained at the Titans premier” has been spotted on eBay, chances are likely that the DC Booth giveaway is also the item given to the Titans premiere, invited guests.
The comic, featuring a photo image of Robin from the DCU Titans show, is an awesome SWAG item, and a great marketing tool for the DC Universe online service.…
I wasn’t able to get my hands on one of the mystery items during the Titans premier, but throughout the four -day event, I was able to snag one of the Titans comics from the DC Entertainment Booth.
As a SWAG Collector, with chronic FOMO… I sincerely hope the two items are one-in-the-same!
*If anyone can confirm what the mystery item actually was, I’d sure appreciate it!
