With news season is finally starting to feel like it’s in full swing! We’ve got a packed AM edition of Under the Tents for you today, with your first look at one of Image Comics’ SDCC exclusives this year, as well as updates on autograph signings, mini originals, and more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- Jonathan Hickman, Mike Del Mundo, Mike Hiddleston are the exciting team behind 3 Worlds / 3 Moons — and they’ll all be heading to San Diego Comic-Con next month, with their own Booth #2806. They also mention “Special events and offerings for Founders”.
- Can you BELIEVE that Patrick Ballesteros has created 30 mini originals for the con? You’ll be able to grab them, like this ted lasso piece, at the convention each morning, with the exact release schedule of original art still TBA.
- As part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s announcements yesterday, it was revealed that the first two episodes of season three HBO Max animated harley quinn will be screened for attendees at the con. Details beyond that are mum (and we suspect it may not be a normal panel) — but writer/producer for the series, Patrick Schumacker, mentioned that he’ll be in attendance. It’s also worth mentioning that actor Alan Tudyk, who voices the Joker, Clayface, and more in the series, RT’d the tweet. Could that signal cast will be at the con? We hope so!
- Artist Jose Pulido will be putting his own fun spin on some DC and starwars items, with new stickers, pins, and a t-shirt at the con. You can stop by Booth #H-03 in Small Press to pick them up.
- farscape actress Gigi Edgley is always a fan favorite at the con, and she’ll be doing several signings in the Sails Pavilion this year, including:
- Thursday, July 21 – 2:30pm-7pm
- Friday, July 22 – 2:30pm-7pm
- Saturday, July 23 – 2:30pm-7pm
- Sunday, July 24 – 1:30pm-5pm
- Are you feeling fired up by all this Comic-Con news? UDON sure is! UDON gave a sneak peek of one of their street-fighter pins, and it’s straight fire.
- Is it even a UTT without young artist Ethan Castillo showing off his latest Spidey print? We think not, and we wouldn’t want to deny you. You can pick it up at Artists Alley #AA-01.
- Comic book writer Tom Taylor mentioned he’d be doing signings at San Diego Comic-Con. Could this be a sign of hope that some DC artists will be doing signings at the con after all? Or is he merely referring to the already-announced CGC Series signings or signings at other booths? We’ll just have to stay tuned to find out.
- Voice actress Sandy Fox, best known for her work as Betty Boop and Chibiusa in sailor Moon, will also be signing at the con. You can catch her in the Sails Pavilion on Saturday, July 23 from 2:30pm-7pm.
- While we’d already shown off artist Rob Liefeld’s cool Comic-Con VIP packs, I have also mentioned he’ll be doing signings each day. We’ll have to stay tuned to find out where.
