Outlander fans were ecstatic and jumped for joy when hearing there would be an Outlander presence at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. The Timeless Sass3nach Journeys is no exception. Our level of excitement further elevated when we found out that the season premiere was officially announced as September 10th 2017. With SDCC right around the corner, we anxiously await the multiple panels that will be held this year and the chance to participate in the autograph session. We are certain that the power of Outlander’s presence will be recognized by many!
We look forward to the exhibit floor booths, held at the San Diego Convention Center, that will contain memorabilia for all fans. Of course, we were excited to discover that the STARZ booth (#4029) will be teasing fans with ‘The Print Shop’ – and swag! However, it was also thrilling to find out that it isn’t the only booth boasting Outlander. Insight Editions will also be in attendance on the showroom floor showcasing unique designs of popular fandoms.
At their booth, Insight Editions will preview a new product, Outlander: The Poster Portfolio, due out September 26, 2017. This is an 11×14 paperback book filled with 20 frameable posters. With the images, one can gaze at quintessential moments from the series as well as admire characters and costumes.
If you’re looking for a regal-looking writing notebook in which to jot your deepest dreams and desires, Insight Editions will soon be selling a gorgeous Outlander themed journal. Look for it on display at their SDCC booth where you can see it in it’s full glory. It has 192 archival-safe lined pages as well as a pocket in which to keep your treasures, such as Pocket Jamie or Claire.
Aren’t those books beautiful?! Insight Editions will have these Outlander items at their booth. They will also have quite a bit of other merchandise, including a Back to the Future: Sculpted Movie Poster & Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History Collector’s Edition. Back to the Future happens to be Sam Heughan’s favorite movie!
