Yesterday, we were pleased to bring you a double-shot of yummy UTT goodness. Today’s UTT isn’t quite as jam-packed as yesterday’s, but it certainly has good stuff in it. Today’s SDCC news runs the gamut from adorable to downright weird. Either way, we think you’ll enjoy what we have for you.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- By now, you’ve probably heard that Disney is bringing back one of its most beloved cartoons, DuckTales (Woo-oo!). Ahead of its premier in late August and September, IDW will have new DuckTales comics as SDCC exclusives, followed by a mass roll-out.
- Patrick Ballesteros latest new 25 Cent Wonder is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (and James Gunn thinks so too!). The Mary Poppins and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 mash-up is amazing, and will be available for sale at San Diego Comic-Con at Ballesteros’ table in Artist Alley.

Got the proof in for the first run of our MIDDLE SCHOOL EARTH trade! I've learned so much over the past few months, drawing in a style I've never done before, sequential layout and execution, (PATIENCE) and most of all, having such hilarious collaborations with my man Jordan Hart. So fantastic to see it all come together! And in time for @comic_con! Richard, Roel and Lil' Drago's adventures shall continue!!! – #original #story #fantasy #middleschoolearth #illustration #sequentialart #comics #tween #adventure #barbarians #elves #dragons #creators #podcast #book #zine #comic #comiccon #MIDDLESCHOOLEARTH #CLAUS
- There are some things, good or bad, you just can’t unsee. Dave Dwonch’s Game of Justice poster is one of those things.

He’s only bringing 50 of these 18×24 posters with him, so order now to snag your very own Joffrey the Monkey for just $40.

Yes. I will be at #SDCC this year, Donna!
