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

- Costume designer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ann Foley told a fan on Twitter that she will be signing autographs after her panel for Dressing the Characters on Saturday July 23rd. While Foley didn’t confirm all the panelists — which include Giovanna Melton (Marvel’s Agent Carter), Terry Dresbach (Outlander), Luis Sequeira (The Strain), and Kiersten Ronning (Supergirl) — for the signing, odds are good they will all be there.
Thx Mollie! There will be a signing after the panel! Hope to see you there! #SDCC https://t.co/ndp90fvdwq
