It’s getting to be the time of year where our Under the Tents column comes almost daily, so we’ve got another new edition for you! In today’s UTT, we’ve got news of a Miraculous Ladybug appearance, word on how to attend an Aisha Tyler secret fan event, Skybound and Toddland exclusives teases, and lots of commission lists that have opened up.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Miraculous Ladybug, the French CGI series that airs here in the states on Nickelodeon, will be represented at Comic-Con in some form! Creator Thomas Astruc revealed on Twitter that he’ll be at the convention this summer. For a Nickelodeon panel? On the exhibit floor? We’ll have to wait to find out.
Bad News: I won't attend to Moscow Comic Con. Visa for Russia is such a mess to obtain.
Good News: I'll be at San Diego Comic Con!
