In Exclusives, Features, General News by Andy Wagner1 Comment

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.

  • Comic book retailer KRS Comics is hosting bestselling artist Tyler Kirkham at their SDCC Booth #5559. He’ll only be there Friday and Saturday, so if you’d like him to sign something for you, stop by then.

  • Local San Diego artist Gabriel Eltaeb is supporting The Hero Initiative’s fundraiser by donating this piece. You can find and bid on it at Basic Bar/Pizza on Preview Night from 9PM to 1AM PT. Don’t forget to stop by the UBlog’s meet-up, 2Blog 2Furious, at McFadden’s, too.

  • Artist Camilla d’Errico added a new creature to her “Surreal Safari” series for SDCC. Meet Dandy Lion. She’ll have Dandy and the rest of her safari available at Booth #4723.

Ta-Da! Meet "Dandy Lion" ✨✨ My colorful lion painting is finished for my #sdcc “Surreal Safari” series! 🌈🦁 What do you think? 😄 He's so fluffy I can't even 😆 I really love how this little guy makes me smile!💖I hope he brightens your day too! It's very exciting as an artist to know that your work connects with people ❤🖌 My motivation was to make something fun and colorful and happy, so it's heartwarming if my art makes you lovelies feel that way too! 😊💕 I'll be debuting the series all together next month at SDCC at my booth #4723 and I can't wait! 😁I'm off to make him more buddies! 😉🖌 Big hugs! 💞Have a great afternoon lovelies! 😙 #heartwarming #happy #loveyouall

  • There are some things, good or bad, you just can’t unsee. Dave Dwonch’s Game of Justice poster is one of those things. This mash-up of Justice League of America and Game of Thrones is set to debut at SDCC this year. 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.

  • You ask, they answer (sometimes). Best selling author and artist Tony S. Daniel was asked if he’s attending SDCC this year, and he responded with a resounding yes. Look for panels and signings at the DC Booth from him.

  • Local San Diego artist Scott Hattox is pretty excited about SDCC (we don’t blame him). He’ll be at Booth #1829, where he’s offering a free print to all members of the 501st Legion organization.

  • Disney artist Lorelay Bove added another piece she’ll have available at SDCC. Her mini paintings of Poison Ivy can be found with her at the Gallery Nucleus booth.
  • Wayward Raven teased a few images from their new one-shot set to release at SDCC this year, inFusion, a sci-fi oddity. This will be their first year at San Diego Comic-Con International, so let’s welcome them warmly and show them some love.

  • Catch up on all of Raven Moon’s adventures in Kymera Press’s Gates of Midnight series before her triumphant return in issues #7 and #8 to debut at SDCC.

  • Wayward Raven isn’t the only newbie at SDCC this year. Shelly from inki-Drop announced she will have a booth at SDCC this year for the first time as well. Let’s welcome her and show her some SDCC love, too.
