We hope that all of our readers had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
But as we inch closer to the new year, and with several thousand attendees now having secured a badge to San Diego Comic-Con 2016, it’s time to bring back our popular Under the Tents column. This is our round-up of all the news about San Diego Comic-Con, from artist confirmations to exclusives to more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Comic-Con International began letting some exhibitors know that their applications for 2016 were approved this month – which means not only do we know who some of the attendees for 2016 will be now, but we also know who some of the artists will be. First up, is one of our favorites, Patrick Ballesteros, who will be returning to SDCC 2016 with more kidifed-superhero art.
Guess who's coming back to SDCC next year….WOOOOHOOOO, need I say more. The countdown begins, now time to start planning some big things!
