In Exclusives, General News by Ben KucharskiLeave a Comment

We are six days away from San Diego Comic-Con 2015.  In case you missed it, Nerd HQ tickets went on sale and sold out this morning.  For many of us, that was the last hurdle for making our schedules.  Included in this edition of Under the Tents are a contest, exclusives, freebies, toy previews, panel info, and art available for purchase.  Enjoy our latest edition and remember that after all the stress and craziness, Comic-Con is fun.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Gallery Nucleus posted on their website an updated list of exclusives they will have at their booth #2643 at SDCC.  So far they have two shirts and five prints listed with “more to come.”  Exclusives listed so far include work by Junko Mizuno, Sarah Kipin, Jed Henry, Alex Ahad, Drake Brodahl and more.
  • Thanks to Comic Book Resources, we can now get to the real meat of what’s important at Comic-Con.  KFC posted on Facebook that they will have a free comic book of their this year at the convention.  This will be Colonel Sanders’ return to marketing after a 21 year absence.

  • J. Michael Straczynski and some fans (including us) had a disturbing Twitter exchange that his Sense8 panel at Comic-Con 2015 will not include any of the cast because Netflix “doesn’t support SDCC.”  That is some disheartening news to say the least.

  • Flat Bonnie is teaming up with Giant Robot to bring another exclusive to SDCC 2015.  This is Manny the Sloth doing a little cosplay of his own as Star Wars‘ Chewbacca, or ChewLoth.  ChewLoth is 10″ tall and will be signed and individually numbered, and though we don’t know exactly how many, it will be limited.  He comes with an adoption certificate, button and sticker.  You can find him at booth #1729.
