How may I get a creator or celebrity autograph?
Creator and celebrity guest autographs are offered at the sole discretions of Tucson Comic-Con guests. A couple of important things to note:
- Comic industry pros (creators, writers, artists, etc.) will often sign autographs free of charge, or in exchange for a donation to a charitable organization, but always be polite and ask first.
- Celebrity guests (actors, directors, producers, television, Internet personalities, etc.) often charge a fee for autographs or offer photos and other memorabilia for sale that they’ll autograph at no additional charge. Their pricing is usually posted at their tables.
We ask all attendees to please be respectful and courteous to Tucson Comic-Con’s creator and celebrity guests, as they are taking time out of their busy schedules to meet their fans.

Some of our celebrity guests may offer photo ops with attendees for a fee. Photo op pricing and availability varies from guest to guest and we recommend checking at their tables for more information.

Generally speaking, Q&A panels are FREE to all paid attendees of Tucson Comic-Con, but do note that certain panels can be “workshops” that may charge a small fee.
