In Exclusives, General News by Ben Kucharski1 Comment

As San Diego Comic-Con 2015 draws closer, more and more information has been pouring in. It is never too soon to start planning.  Stay organized, and a great way to do that is with spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are your friends. You could have one for exclusives you are interested in, booths you want to check out, programming and signings you want to attend, etc.

In this edition of Under the Tents we have a ton of information to fill up those spreadsheets with. Let’s start with exclusives. This edition covers exclusives from BeeFy & Co, Jack and the Zombie Attack, and Aphrodite IX.  Next, there are appearances. Some of those appearances include webcomic Dumbing or Age, Tola Lotay, Kamite Comix, Skottie Young, and more.  Lastly there are the booths. This year we know there will be booths for Armando Huerta and Thinkgeek. And lastly we have info on increased trolley security and more crocheted creatures by The Geeky Hooker.  Read on for the latest info on SDCC 2015.
