Under The Tents Late Edition: Clark Gregg, Veronica Mars, DC, The Walking Dead, Kotobukiya, ‘You’re Next’

We’ve started a new, quasi-regular column on the Blog titled “Under The Tents”. The title is symbolic, as it’s representatives of the times we all line up under the tents waiting for those big moments to happen inside Hall H or Ballroom 20.

You can find this morning’s edition here.

Here’s the stuff you might have missed for today:

  • Coulson lives! Executive Editorial Director for the Marvel Digital Media Group, Ryan Penagos, confirmed via Twitter that Clark Gregg will be in attendance for the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

  • Thanks to a tweet from the official Veronica Mars account, as now have confirmation that the Veronica Mars onsite panel will take place on Friday – likely before their offsite event that night. While specific cast members in attendance have not been released, some of the cast will also be doing signings at the Warner Bros. Entertainment booth on Friday:

Everyday for the next 20 days we are giving away two-packs of The Walking Dead Minimates! From now until July 18, we will randomly select a winner from the daily Walker or Survivor registrants. Each winner will receive a two-pack of The Walking Dead Minimates from Diamond Select Toys.

It’s a great event, and you can find out what to expect from our post earlier in the year. Just don’t get bitten, it ain’t pretty.
