Comic-Con news stops for no man (or woman, or wookie). We’ve already got more news for you on several artists and some previews of their work, a Scott Pilgrim bag making its debut at SDCC, information about BioWare’s appearance at the convention, news on what you might be seeing from NECA, information on how to become a part of the BBC America’s booth display, and much more.
Here’s the stuff you might have missed for today:
- Last year, Blizzard Entertainment, maker of such awesome games as Diablo III, World of Warcraft and StarCraft II, brought some pretty sweet exclusives to Comic-Con last year. Safe to say, there was a constant swarm surrounding its booth all weekend. Well, fans of the popular video game company will be happy to hear Blizzard will once again return to Comic-Con, according to an announcement on the Heroes of the Storm website:
Blizzard is proud to announce that we’ll be returning to this year’s San Diego Comic Con, bringing with us never-before-seen treasures and show exclusives from our Licensing Team! Keep an eye out for schedule details and exciting product reveals (coming soon).
- Artist Otis Frampton tweeted he was denied an Artist Alley booth at SDCC. Luckily he will be there anyway at a table with fellow Artist/Writer Josh Howard.
Aw, crud. Looks like I was denied an Artist Alley table at SDCC. Good thing I already have space in a booth. Thanks, @joshuahoward!
