XIII at San Diego Comic-Con; Get Your Collectibles
07.11.12 by Chris
Reelz is taking its new original show XIII to San Diego Comic-Con. We will have teams roaming the streets of San Diego to promote XIII, handing out collectible trading cards featuring stars Stuart Townsend, Aisha Tyler, and Virginie Ledoyen. Fans and Comic-Con attendees are challenged to collect all three but like the character XIII, these cards will prove to be elusive. It's our challenge to you to see if you can collect all three.
If you haven't been watching XIII Fridays on Reelz, here's the full synopsis:
He doesn't remember who he is. He doesn't recognize his face. He doesn't even know his name. All he has is a tattoo of the Roman Numeral "XIII" and the skills of a highly trained secret agent.
XIII was trained by the government to be a covert CIA operative acquiring sophisticated combat and infiltration skills. He was sent on secret missions so dark that no one in Washington knew their actual purpose. When the mission went bad XIII was betrayed by the Government. As part of an elaborate cover-up they changed his face, erased his memory and locked him away deep inside an Eastern European prison.
But XIII escaped, and now he's searching for answers…uncovering his shadowy past and the international conspiracy that threatens his present. Powerful figures threaten and manipulate him as he gets closer to the mysterious center of a deadly puzzle…where the key to all the intrigue is XIII.
Here are the details about the XIII promotion:
