San Diego Comic-Con will be here before you know it, and it’s going to become hard to keep up with all of the news. We recommend that if you see something you’re interested in, you start jotting down those booth numbers and event times now.
But first, take a look at today’s edition of Under the Tents, which has news on Adventure Time and Aliens exclusives and collectibles, the new San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Souvenir Book cover artwork, word on appearances from Adam Savage and Robert Liefeld, and much more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- A tweet from Daniel Presedo, CEO of Dramenon Studios LLC and a speaker and proponent of Adobe products, has revealed that the Adobe booth will be returning to San Diego this summer, and asked fans what they’d like to see at the booth.
- Amy Hernandez, half of the team that brought kids the book Jack and the Zombie Attack, tweeted that she will be at SDCC 2015 and invites fans to stop by. The newest book is coming to Comic-Con, and continues the series and is about anti-bullying.

- Robert Liefeld, writer, artist, and creator of Deadpool, as well as other beloved characters announced on Twitter he will be attending Comic-Con 2015. Other noteable accomplishments are starting Image Comics.
I will be set up at both Wondercon and San Diego as well. Working on setting up the rest of the spring/summer comic con schedule.

- Ed Brisson, comic writer for Image, Marvel, IDW, BOOM, and Dark Horse, announced on Twitter that he’ll be at Comic-Con this year. Although his exact schedule isn’t known yet, Brisson mentioned that he’ll probably just be doing “a couple/few signings”.
So, yeah, I'll be at SDCC this year. Probably just doing a couple/few signings between shark induced panic attacks.

- Although popular artist-collective (and the makers of some of the coolest posters, ever) Mondo recently revealed they won’t be at WonderCon, they will be returning to Comic-Con. Justin Ishmael revealed on Twitter that they’re working on plans now, and will have information to share “down the line”.
So close to announcing stuff on @MondoConAustin and down the line, SDCC. Today was big planning days for both. Excited to share soon.

The collection will feature keychains, a blind box series, and medium figures – and they promise San Diego Comic Con exclusives are also planned for the series.
