In case you somehow hadn’t noticed, things have started getting a little busier around here lately. Already this week, we had exclusive revels galore, news that Wynonna Earp and its cast will be heading to the convention center, and even (gasp!) evidence that onPeak might come into work one day next week as the hotel waitlist will supposedly begin on June 1. But that’s not all the news!
We’ve also got word that Bruce Campbell is heading to the convention, exclusive news, and much more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Artist Hannah Lynn heads back to San Diego Comic-Con at Table B-02 – and if you stop by, you can pick up an SDCC exclusive limited edition collector card for free (distribution capped at 200 per day).
- Collectibles company Icon Heroes is back at San Diego Comic-Con this year at Booth #3345, and they recently posted a teaser image showing off the licenses they’ll be featuring in this year’s SDCC exclusives: Arrow, Once Upon a Time, Star Trek, Wonder Woman, and Batman Arkham Knight.
