San Diego Comic-Con will be here before you know it (really — it kicks off a month from tomorrow), which means that we’ve got plenty of San Diego Comic-Con news to share with you even on a Sunday. Today’s Under the Tents column features updates on Bluefin and where to find them on the show floor, what you’ll want to grab at Antiis Comics booth, the world’s cutest plush figures from Fat Rabbit Farm, and much more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- If you like the San Diego Comic-Con exclusives Fat Rabbit Farm has been sharing thus far, then you’re going to love the plush items they have coming later this week. They offered up a sneak peek on Instagram, and one looks a little, well, wonder-ful — while the other looks like it will be gone in a flash. We’re not sorry for these puns, but maybe we should be.
- Illustrator and animator Martin Hsu offered a first glimpse of a Tropical Paradise toy he’s working on as part of a Kindreds Figure Artist Series for Max Toy Company. You’ll be able to pick it up at the convention at Martin Hsu’s Booth #4530.
- Oscar Rosales, an LA-based artist who created the Bleenkies, announced that he will be sharing booth space during the con with Cool Cat Blue artist Matthew Walker.

Ta-Da!!! So my good news is that I'll be a vendor sharing a booth with @coolcatblueishere next month at San Diego Comic Con!!! Special thanks to Matthew from Cool Cat Blue for sharing his spot with me! Give him a follow when you get a chance! I have a lot of new art to create, so stay tuned!!! 👍🏼
- David Petersen, the creator of Mouse Guard, will have a Mouse Guard sketchbook debuting at the convention. He offered a first look on Facebook of some of the proofs.
- As we reported yesterday, Moon’s Creations will have several crocheted creations at the convention (including a Predator Bunny!) that will be dropped by everyone’s favorite Geeky Hooker. They also revealed an adorable Pinhead Bunny, which is just part of the six creations Moon’s will have at the convention. Good luck scavenger hunting!
- Artist Sana Takeda of Image Comics’ Monstress announced that she and writer Marjorie Liu will be at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.
- Author Anna Todd shared on her website that she will be at San Diego Comic-Con in some capacity.
- Bluefin always brings some of our favorite San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. While they haven’t started unveiling 2017’s exclusives, we do now know that you can find them at Booth #401 and at Booth #3545 on the show floor.
- Young adult author Marissa Meyer will be at San Diego Comic-Con this year, where she will be on a panel and also doing signings — with more details still to be announced.
- Disney Animation artist and designer Lorelay Bove showed off two more mini-paintings she will have at her booth, featuring “Glamour Ladies”. I might fight you for that Holly Golightly.
- Antiis Comics will have pins of Boris the Boston Terrier and Midnight (with artwork by Katie Cook) will be available for purchase at San Diego Comic-Con this year for just $8 each. Um, adorable.
