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.
SUPERGALAYONDUISTICMARYPOPINDOCIOUS! 1 of my fav movies to date. Dang it @JamesGunn, I didn't expect to tear up at the end! #SDCC #vol3 pic.twitter.com/fjnJ9ShEEb

- 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.
- Hyperactive Monkey artist Jerome Lu shared via Instagram that Black Mechannita will be the last colorway of the Monkey Mech Girl. She’ll be available at SDCC this year.
- We’ve shared in previous UTTs about artist Miso, aka Karen Hsiao, and all she’s bringing to SDCC this year. Now, it appears she’s even bringing an army of bun buns with her.
- 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.
- Artist Justin Harder just got his proof back for his new work, Middle School Earth, and he’s pretty pleased with it, as are we. What’s even more exciting is that it will be available in time for him to bring it with him to SDCC this year. Stop by Small Press Booth #O-08 to find this and more of Harder’s work.
- 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.
Check out my 18×24 Game of Justice poster set to debut at #SDCC. Limited to 50. Don't miss out… pre-order NOW!! https://t.co/ET7azvQApK pic.twitter.com/auwNq6tqwM

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