“Hannibal” was a big draw at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con.  Fans of the NBC show, called “Fannibals”, spent hours waiting in lines for panels and signings to meet the shows creators and stars.  Even though NBC has announced that the current season will be the last for the drama, they are certainly going out with a bang.

In addition to a completely full panel discussion and numerous parties and interviews throughout the weekend, a book signing was held on Sunday across from the San Diego Convention Center to promote the new book “The Art and Making of Hannibal: The Television Series” by Jesse McLean.  This beautiful coffee table book has behind the scenes photos, extracts of shooting scripts, and exclusive cast and crew interviews. The 176 page book is published by Titan Books and retails at Amazon.com for $16.98.

Fans started lining up in the middle of the night for a chance to get their books signed and meet the stars.  Bryan Fuller and Hugh Dancy even stayed after the signing to walk through the line of remaining fans to sign their items.
