Welcome to another edition of Under The Tents! San Diego Comic-Con news will be dropping on a bit more of a regular basis and this time around we bring information on Ace Parking, a small update on Nerd HQ, Zenescope Entertainment, and much more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Zenescope Entertainment sent out a tweet with their 2016 convention schedule which includes San Diego Comic-Con. Zenescope is best known for their Grimm Fairy Tales comics.
- S.H.I.E.L.D. TV, a fan site for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, who is once again bringing their Sunday Agents Wrap Party to Comic-Con (tickets are still on sale), hinted at some of the awesome swag they’ll be giving attendees, like another challenge coin.

- Artist John Ottigner tweeted out a new robot design for his latest Dweores comic. Ottinger always brings something special to the convention, and we expect this year to be no different.
- Terry Moore, best known for his long-running comic series Strangers in Paradise, responded to a tweet about having an omnibus at SDCC this year. Strangers in Paradise already has an omnibus, so let the speculation begin!
