What was the reaction to this? A whole lot of OMGs as well as questions about if any cast would be joining Joss and if Joss's signing was ticketed. Let's start with ticketing. It wasn't. The original autograph plan was not to have tickets of any kind for Joss; however, we received quite a few e-mails from fans who were concerned. If they were in the Joss panel, how'd they get to the Joss autographing right after? It's an honest and good question. In all likelihood, if you're in the Dollhouse panel, if you head off toward the signing, there'll be 3,000 people there by the time you show up. As such, we went back to FOX, and after discussions, it was decided to turn the Dollhouse signing into a ticketed event.
Tickets to the signing will be distributed first come, first served, via a lottery, and at the VIP Lounge on Sunday, February 8. For more details, visit the Autograph page at nycomiccon.com. Please note (unlike other autographing tickets) these tickets won't be available online prior to the show. The only ways to get autograph tickets for Dollhouse are first come, first served, via a lottery, and at the VIP Lounge on Sunday, February 8.
We pushed for this change because of all the feedback we received on this blog and in our inboxes, and we hope this change alleviates a lot of questions and concerns.
But, wait, why'd I call the Joss signing the "Dollhouse signing"? Is someone joining him? Yes. New York Comic Con is pleased to announce that Dollhouse star Tahmoh Penikett will be appearing at New York Comic Con on Sunday, February 8! Tahmoh portrays FBI agent Paul Ballard on Dollhouse (and you may also know him as Helo on Battlestar Galacticia). Tahmoh will be speaking at the Dollhouse panel from 12:45 to 1:45 PM on Feb 8 in the IGN Theater as well as signing beside Joss at the autograph signing from 2 to 3 PM in the Autograph Area in the rear of the Exhibition Hall.
NYCC hopes this ticket addition satisfies fans, and we know Tahmoh's name is music to everyone's ears!
