Can you believe that we’re now less than a month from San Diego Comic-Con? News is flooding out of exhibitors and artists like its Hall H, and Star Wars just invited them to a free symphony. Today’s Under the Tents column has news from Traveling Stories, Wynonna Earp, some adorable critters from Moon’s Creations and The Geeky Hooker, commissions from Sean Forney, and a lot more.

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

  • Crochet is all the rage at SDCC 2017. Moon’s Creations’ latest crochet creation is an homage to the late Adam West’s Batman. This adorable Moon Bun will be added to the list of drops made by The Geeky Hooker. Make sure you’re following her Twitter and/or Facebook feeds to know when and where her drops take place.

  • With some of the surprising announcements we’ve seen this year, nothing is a given anymore (Nerd HQ’s absence still makes us cry). That’s why we were excited to see Rachel Heine, editor-in-chief at Nerdist, confirm that Conival will be back at SDCC this year. We’ll keep an eye out for the details.

  • If you’re part of the late 80s/early 90s MTV Generation X, you may remember animated shorts from Bill Plympton airing frequently between Aeon Flux and Remote Control (and maybe a music video or two). Now, he’s collaborating with Jim Lujan to bring us a new animated film for SDCC, Revengeance. They’re holding a screening (free for SDCC badge holders) at the Marriott Marquis on Friday, July 21 at 10:35PM PT.

  • You’ve seen us report on Kymera Press’s latest issues of Gates of Midnight, #7 and #8, set to debut at SDCC. Here’s a look at the cover for Gates of Midnight #8, with art by Amelia Woo.

  • When a show reboots, the original cast often goes gentle into their good-night. When they rebooted Star Trek, there were three series’ worth of actors who still raged against the dying of the light. What did they do? A lot of them got together and made their own Star Trek-like series, Renegades, on the Atomic Network. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at their SDCC booth.
