Congratulations! You made it to Friday! The end of the week doesn’t mean the end of SDCC news, however. Far from it. Beyond the din of Conan news (go request your tickets now!), many more artists, authors, exhibitors and more had news for us. Read on for news from NECA, Justin Harder, Patrick Ballesteros, and even some job opportunities.

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

  • Sean Forney has been hard at work on a lot of comics. He posted an image of some he’ll have with him at SDCC in Artists Alley at Table #AA-15. Forney also took to Instagram to show off a work-in-progress of a Gambit sketch commission he’s been working on as well.

  • Albatross! We have an update on the signing dates and times for Albatross Funnybooks’ Galaktikon #1. Creator Brendon Small will be at Booth #2209 on Friday, July 21 starting at 2PM PT to sign the exclusive metallic variant cover.

  • If you’ve seen Skybound Comics’ The Walking Dead #171: Fear the Princess, you’ve met their latest badass, The Princess. What’s her backstory? Who is she? The Walking Dead announced that if you cosplay as The Princess this year, you’ll get free swag from them. Stop by AMC’s Booth #4237 and show off your best Princess.

  • An eager tweeter posted that clothing designer Jordan Dené will have a panel at SDCC this year, which was confirmed with Dené. Her last-minute change of plans is good news for those of us who enjoy nerd couture. Here are some examples of her designs:

  • Actress Brea Grant announced she will be signing at SDCC to support the release of her new movie, Beyond the Gates. We’ll keep an eye out for more details as they’re posted.

  • If you were one of those many unlucky souls who didn’t score a badge this year, we found a couple opportunities for you to be there and earn some money while you’re at it.
    • Event Staffing is looking for Brand Ambassadors, Field Managers, and Costume Characters. They’re offering $15-$25 an hour during all five days of SDCC. See their Craigslist ad to get in touch with them.
    • U.S. Security Associates is looking for security guards to work first and second shift during SDCC. They’re offering $15 an hour plus benefits for this position. See their ZipRecruiter ad for more info and how to apply.
