The Darkling is on his way to New York Comic Con.
Shadow and Bone‘s Ben Barnes has been announced for the upcoming convention, joining his fellow co-stars Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, and Kit Young, as well as the Grishaverse author herself, Leigh Bardugo!
Based on Bardugo’s novels, Shadow and Bone takes place in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Barnes will be available for autographs and photo ops on Saturday and Sunday at the convention, including a TeamUp op with Carter, Suman, and Young. These extras are now on sale.
A panel featuring Barnes, Bardugo, Carter, Suman, and Young will take place on Saturday, October 8 at 2 p.m. ET on the Main Stage.
While a premiere date has not yet been confirmed, the second season of Shadow and Bone is on the way. In the meantime, season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
In addition to the stars of Shadow and Bone, the stacked guest list for the convention also includes Oscar Isaac, Sebastian Stan, Brendan Fraser, Sam Heughan, Christopher Lloyd, Michael J. Fox, Cassandra Peterson, and more.
New York Comic Con will take place October 6-9 at the Javits Center in New York City. Tickets are now on sale.
