Comic-Con: Fox and Boom! Team for 'Maze Runner' Comic (Exclusive)

Fox will be giving away a free Maze Runner comic book to those lucky enough to get into the studio’s Friday Hall H panel.

STORY Comic-Con: Highlights From the Film Lineup

Pizza Hut Is Bringing A Giant Pizza Thrower to Comic-Con (No, Really)

It’s the eternal question for movies and other brands seeking to make an impression at San Diego Comic-Con: What can we do to get noticed?
