Insight Editions at SDCC

Reading Time: 3 minutes

SDCC-Insight-MainI’m very excited to be heading to SDCC next week–my first trip there in over ten years. One of the booths I’m looking forward to hitting is the Insight Editions booth.

Insight Editions publishes a ton of great books that we have often covered here at GeekDad and GeekMom, so it shouldn’t be a big surprise that their booth (#1703) will be full of not only great books but also plenty of activities and giveaways for attendees.

Here are just some of the highlights from the booth this year:

  • All books are 30% off. If you’ve been waiting for a sale to nab some of their fine books, this is the time to do it!
  • Ghostbusters giveaway. There will be a Slimer selfie banner and anyone who posts a picture to social media with the banner and hashtag #SlimerSelfie will get a free Tobin’s Spirit Guide poster.
  • Giant coloring page. Insight Editions is releasing several coloring books later this year including DC ComicsSupernatural, Wonder Woman, and Assassin’s Creed. To promote the coloring books, there will be a giant coloring page for attendees to contribute to.
