It’s Monday, and that means we’re one day closer to San Diego Comic-Con. The banners are hung ’round the Gaslamp with care, in hopes that Stan Lee soon will be there. While we wait not-so-eagerly, let’s take a look at some SDCC news from the Ninjabot, Heroes Brew Fest, Flat Bonnie, and a lot more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Comic book font pioneer Richard Starkings has a new Elephantmen t-shirt design for SDCC 2017 he’ll have at the Elephantmen Booth #2106.
- Maximum meowing? Artist Scott Blair is bringing his Deadpool parody, Catpool, to SDCC this year. Find the Funko/Deadpool parody at Blair’s Table #FF-18 in Artists Alley.
- Artist Dan Quintana has a new sketch he’s bringing to SDCC this year. You’ll find this and a lot more at Booth #F-02 in the Exhibit Hall.
- Unfortunately, Ejen Chuang, author of Cosplay in America, can’t be at SDCC this year. That doesn’t mean you won’t find signed copies of his latest book, Cosplay in America: V2, at SDCC. Stop by the AnimeWorks Booth #5552 to pick one up.
- If you’re going to Heroes Brew Fest this year, you’ll be happy to know they’re holding the Annual Heroes Brew Fest Costume Contest again. Will Wolverine take the prize again? Or will your costume be the best? You can still get tickets at Heroesbrewfest.com.
- Even baby bunny unicorns can cosplay. Plushy creator Flat Bonnie announced that Baby Unicorn has finished her SDCC 2017 costume, WonderCorn. Find her at the Giant Robot Booth #1729.

- There ain’t no rest for the wicked (or weary, depending on your version). Since the shelves at DKE Toys don’t stock themselves, the brilliant craftsmen who design them are hard at work getting them ready for the rest of us. Stop by Booth #5045 and let them know their hard work paid off.
- Our good friend, the Ninjabot, is set to debut new sticker designs at SDCC this year at Small Press Booth #L-08. Don’t forget to stop by his booth each day for his free button. Do you know his super secret phrase to get his super secret button? We totally know it.
