In General News by Kerry Dixon1 Comment

While we’re all still busy waiting around for badge news, let’s have some actual San Diego Comic-Con 2017 news, shall we?

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Each year, the Kevin Workman Foundation sponsors an artist to attend San Diego Comic-Con, and you could be that artist. The lucky artist receives two 4-day badges, the opportunity to showcase their portfolio, sell product, and network from the KWF Booth at the convention. You have between now and January 15, 2017 to submit your application, so head on over to their Sponsorship page to apply now.
  • Artists Sean Forney and Josh Warner revealed via Twitter that they’ll be returning to exhibit at this year’s convention.

  • Artist Chad Heinrich will also be exhibiting at the convention, and showed off a piece he’ll have at SDCC 2017.

  • Are you an academic attending San Diego Comic-Con, and interested in hosting your own panel? One of the best ways to get involved is through the Comics Arts Conference, which accepts individual presentations to present throughout the convention. You can submit by February 1, 2017, on their website.

  • Author Sherrilyn Kenyon will also be returning to the convention, where she’ll likely be signing autographs and meeting fans. You can find out more information and keep updated on her Facebook event page.

  • Avengers, assemble. Into this Marvel cosplay photoshoot. The annual photo op will return in 2017 – so follow along on Facebook for the final date and time, closer to the event.
