Under the Tents: The Loyal Subjects, Vikings, Carrie Henn, Peter Shinkoda, Mondo, Nobu

Didn’t we just have one of these yesterday? And the day before? Well, yes, we did – but there’s still plenty of San Diego Comic-Con news left to share with our readers, including first looks at The Loyal Subject’s SDCC exclusive, word of a Vikings figure headed to the con, autograph and panel news, and even some info on how to score reservations at the popular eatery Nobu.

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

  • Author Mari Naomi revealed on Twitter that she’ll be on a panel at San Diego Comic-Con called Generations of Women in Comics, featuring Trina Robbins, Mary Fleener, and Anina Bennett. The panel date she posted says July 24, 2016 (Friday) — so we’re not sure if the panel is really Sunday, July 24 or Friday, July 22. Either way, it will be at 3:30PM.

  • Occasionally, you might want to eat at Comic-Con (weird, right?). When you do, Nobu is a good option, as it’s both close and delicious. They’ve got instructions for how to make reservations during San Diego Comic-Con on their site.


  • Masked Republic, who specialize in Lucha Libre events, revealed that several performers will be heading to the Headlocked Comics booth during the convention. More details TBA.

  • This should come as no surprise, but Mondo – the makers of incredible pop culture posters and vinyl – won’t be doing pre-orders for their SDCC releases, as per usual.

      The question on everyone’s minds: Will this finally be the year that Netflix shows up with an official presence? Although actress

Krysten Ritter made comments earlier this year to the effect that she’ll be at the convention this year

      , it was never a certainty that she’ll be there to promote

Marvel’s Jessica Jones

      . But now actor Peter Shinkoda, in

responding to a fan about the Netflix series Daredevil

      being at SDCC, said he’ll be there Saturday afternoon. Peter, known for his role as Nobu on


    , doesn’t specify why he will be there though – but it seems just a little more possible.
