Under The Tents: SDCC News for June 11, 2013

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

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

  • Publisher Top Cow is giving cosplayers a chance to appear in one of its upcoming comics. Just stop by its booth, #2629, and dress as a character from parent publisher Image Comics. As a thank-you to fans, they’ll take your picture for reference in a future book.
  • Writer/Creator J. Michael Straczynski tweeted his Spotlight panel will be on Saturday, July 20 at 5:30PM.

 We sense a cosplay explosion of Sir Issac Lime this year! You first…

  • City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare tweeted a hint that the movie’s panel would take place on Friday, July 19. That’s the same day as another Sony movie – Amazing Spider-Man 2 – which leads us to believe these will both be part of the annual Sony Pictures studio panel in Hall H.

  • Toy Tokyo tweeted a sneak peak at one of its SDCC exclusives, a Kamen Rider helmet.

  • Be one of the first 8,000 people to sign up as a Walker or Survivor at this year’s The Walking Dead Escape event and get a special collectible copy of the book “The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor“.
