To help you get through this Hump Day, we’ve got two rounds of Under the Tents for you today! This second edition features updates on everything from what you’ll be seeing at Dark Horse’s booth, what you can grab from Lord Mesa, who you’ll be seeing on the Batman and Harley Quinn panel Q&A following the world premiere, to the world’s most adorable crochet Yondu.

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

  • Myopia, a new comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment, will be giving out four pins based on the series at Small Press Table M-11. The four pins feature artwork by Patrick Berkenkotter and Cezar Rezek – so stop by to grab yours!

  • Isoppie – the maker of amazing polyhedral dice shaped bags – revealed another bag that will be on display at the San Diego Comic-Con Art Show (this year located at the Manchester Grand Hyatt!). This Wonder Woman inspired bag draws inspiration from Lynda Carter’s iteration of the character, and features a gold cord instead of the typical ribbon for the drawstring.
  • Artist Mary Bellamy announced that she will be in Small Press Table N-05 this year, where she will have a bonus sequel to Ah Heck!! The Angle Chronicles, a new sketchbook, Sugar Bits Volume 2, Zorilita plush guardians, and more.
  • If you’re an artist who needs a place to showcase your work during San Diego Comic-Con, you can contact Andrew Farago, who is searching for artists to sketch during this year’s convention at the Cartoon Art Museum’s booth. You can find more information on Facebook.
  • Poo-Quito is coming to fight injustice! Bored Inc. showed off their latest San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, a custom Stinky Poo plush that you can grab at the con.
  • Artist Nicole Brune offered a sneak peek at her latest piece, as modeled by Meghan Elle. You can pick up the piece at Booth #5007, where Elle will also be doing a signing.
  • Dark Ink will be releasing more of graphic designer J.J. Lendl’s X-Files prints at San Diego Comic-Con this year, including the one he showed off on Instagram based on the iconic Arcadia episode. They will also be online available starting July 20.
  • The Dark Horse booth will feature the covers for the first five books overseen by editor Karen Berger this year, it sounds like. Cartoonist and graphic designer Richard Bruning mentioned on Twitter that he just finished the covers for the five books, and that you’ll see them as “huge blowups” at the Dark Horse booth. Cool!

  • Edgar Delgado’s latest book, Los Valiants, will have its first volume available at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Los Valiants tells the story of a fictional Featherbay, where the world’s first Superhero fought the world’s first Supervilain, and a group of remarkable individuals would never be the same.

  • At the recent Resident Evil: Vendetta Fathom Event screenings, voice actor Matthew Mercer mentioned that fans should stay tuned to San Diego Comic-Con for more news on Resident Evil. Sounds promising.
