New York Comic Con: ‘Outlander’ Author Diana Gabaldon Announced

2 Min Read

Aye, Sassenach. Fans of the romantic drama series Outlander can now look forward to seeing author Diana Gabaldon at New York Comic Con this October! Gabaldon is the latest in a growing list of guest announcements for the upcoming convention.

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from the year 1945, as she finds herself mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland. Claire is forced to marry a chivalrous, young Scottish warrior named Jamie Fraser, and she soon finds her heart torn between two men across time.

The first book in the ongoing series was published in 1991, and the ninth entry — Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone — was released last November. The books were adapted into a television show that premiered on STARZ in 2014 with Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan in the leading roles. The sixth season recently finished airing this month, and the show was renewed for a seventh season last year.

Gabaldon will be in attendance the Saturday and Sunday of the convention. Other confirmed guests currently include Felicia Day, James and Oliver Phelps, R.L. Stine, Leigh Bardugo, and more.

New York Comic Con will take place October 6-9 at the Javits Center in New York City. The General Onsale for tickets will begin May 22 at 10 a.m. ET. In order to gain access to purchase tickets, make sure to create a Fan Verification account before 5 p.m. ET. today, May 19.
