What’s that? Another Under the Tents? Yes, indeed it is! The frequency of these posts means one thing, we are two months away from San Diego Comic-Con! In this edition of UTT, we cover a few exclusives, Georgia Dunn, “Team Stevie”, Otis Frampton, and Ghostbusters.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Mark Nagata creates custom toys and vinyls and will have some of his creations at SDCC. His work will be a part of the Dragon Boy SDCC 2016 Artist Series that will be found at Booth #4530, run by Martin Hsu. Hsu recently posted a photo of Mark’s work on Instagram that you can find at his booth.
- In more news related to Hsu, he will also have copies of his Dragon Boy Tales book, which is a limited edition with only 200 copies. Can’t get enough Dragon Boy? You’re in luck as Hsu will have SDCC exclusive Dragon Boy resin figures and custom series figures at his booth as well! All of this information was announced on his Facebook event page.
- Cartoonist Georgia Dunn is making the leap from fan to exhibitor as she will be at SDCC to represent her work. Georgia recently tweeted out the news so make sure to wish her best of luck.
For anyone keeping track, this means that YES, my first con as a cartoonist and not a fan will be SDCC. NO PRESSURE!
