With only 51 days until Comic-Con, the news is going to continue to pour in. We have finally seen the completion of Curio & Co.’s tarot deck, gotten word about Dr. Marie Zhivago being on a panel, and Aisha Tyler’s stand-up off-site. We know about some new great booths, or more booth details, such as Red Giant Entertainment, The CaliforniaBrowncoats, Dynomighty Design, Viz, and many more. We also may have gotten a peek at Marvel exclusive merch for this year.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- After many reveals, Cesare Asaro of Curio & Co. tweeted a reveal of the back of the tarot deck of cards being released at SDCC. Check out his timeline for most, if not all, of the cards previewed so far.

- Bleeding Cool has pictures and details of Marvel exclusive merchandise from Atlantic City Boardwalk Con from this weekend — and it’s very possible that some of these items could be headed for San Diego Comic-Con as well. Marvel has been known to use its same exclusives across conventions (similar to how most of San Diego Comic-Con’s exclusives wound up at New York Comic Con). We’re digging those Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. pins, and wouldn’t mind seeing those pop up at Comic-Con at all.

They will be showcasing special art panels at their booth and also be giving away an exclusive Shojo Beat calendar featuring artwork from various popular manga series. They will also be giving away exclusive collectible items imported from Japan.
