We’re really seeing SDCC 2017 news ramp up now. Many of you suffered through #Waitlisterical and found a better place to sleep than the Hall H line. If you’re still looking, you still have some options, which we outlined here. We also saw Mystery Science Theater 3000 and The Adventure Zone announce live shows for San Diego Comic-Con, and some killer Daredevil exclusives from Hasbro. Of course, there were other announcements, and we’ve gathered those here for you.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- John Allison from Scary Go Round Comics lists Comic-Con International on the “Upcoming Appearances” sidebar on his website. We’ll keep a lookout for where you can find him there.
- Coffin Comics’ Lady Death: Merciless Onslaught Tour is “locked in” for SDCC this year.
- Celestial Comics announced via Facebook Event that they will be at SDCC this year. Details are still forthcoming, but they did announce that they are accepting mail-in and onsite submissions until July 7. Let them know you’re interested and stay tuned for more updates.
- Geoff Johns tweeted a teaser for his latest DC installment, Doomsday Clock. We now know within a range of how many issues it will be, but he can’t reveal more until SDCC.
Thanks for all the questions! #DoomsdayClock 🕚will b more than 6 issues/less than 13 – too early to announce other details, more @Comic_Con!

- KRS Comics teased a new SDCC exclusive Peter Parker Spectacular Spiderman #1 cover from Stanley “Artgerm” Lau. If you’re on their mailing list, look for pre-order info from them sometime this week. Cover “D” will be available only at SDCC.
- Local San Diego artist Jessica Yambao showed us her latest Frida Mermaid she’ll have in the SDCC Art Show this year. She also showed us her new mermaid paper doll inspired by Margaery Tyrell, which will also be in the SDCC Art Show.
- Artist Tom Hodges’ pre-done sketch list for SDCC 2017 is now open. You can order by emailing him at [email protected]. Note that he requires a 50% deposit when you order, with the balance due on pick-up.
- The ladies at Kymera Press announced another new comic they plan to debut at SDCC 2017: Dragons by the Yard. This limited edition cover was designed especially for their SDCC release.
- P Dot’s Comics & Collectibles is gearing up for con season, and SDCC is one of their stops. Find them at Booth #1017 in the Exhibit Hall.
- Cosplayer Lyrota posted a tease as to her latest design for the Her Universe Fashion Show. Based on her post, what do you think she’s making? Whatever it is, we’re sure it’s going to be awesome.
- Bottled Monster offered another sneak peak of their SDCC exclusive pins that are currently in production. They say they’ll offer them for sale online if any are left over after the con, but we wouldn’t count on that.
- Claus Studios’ Justin Harder, designer of the end titles for Deadpool (among others), is currently brainstorming ideas for his next SDCC exclusive. Spelling error aside, we’d say this is a strong contender. If you agree, find him in the Small Press area at Table #O-08.
