SDCC news is coming at us fast and furious now. With less than a month to go, announcements are being made by artists, authors, exhibitors, and publishers such as Alex Ross, Lion Forge, Chris Gugliotti, The Behemoth, and more. Read on and find some great SDCC news in our latest Under the Tents column. Oh, by the way, there’s crochet.

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

  • It wouldn’t be SDCC 2017 without crochet. It seems to be everywhere this year. TurtleBunny Creations are getting ready for the Batman and Harley Quinn movie by bringing their own renderings of the unlikely duo. Find them at Small Press Table #N-13.

  • If you ordered an SDCC commission from our good friend, Patrick Ballesteros, you’ll be happy to know he’s hard at work on them. In this one, it looks like he managed to find Waldo and Carmen San Diego. Who would have thought they’d be in San Diego?

  • Vault Comics announced their latest comic, Zojaqan #1, written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzig with art by Nathan Gooden, will debut at SDCC 2017.

  • Alex Ross also posted an image of the new Avengers cover he’ll have at SDCC 2017.

  • Gaming company The Behemoth made their SDCC announcement a few weeks ago but didn’t have details yet. Now, they’ve announced they’ll be back at their usual Booth #229 in Exhibit Hall A, but this year, they’re bringing friends (yes, they have friends). This year’s “Behemoth + Friends” booth will include:
    • Nightmare Cops – Newgrounds
    • Oxygen Not Included – Klei
    • Salt & Sanctuary – Ska Studios
    • Totally Accurate Battle Simulator – Landfall Games
    • Rivals of Aether – Dan Fornace
    • Inversus – Hypersect

  • Bleeding Cool revealed two SDCC exclusive covers from Lion Forge. Both are from their Catalyst Prime universe and will be “virgin covers” – no logo, no UPC, just art.

  • NSURGO announced their latest SDCC exclusive deck designed by artist Long Vo. Look for more details on this coming very soon.
  • Publisher Storm King Comics announced they will be at SDCC this year to promote the release of John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Vault #1. They’ll be giving a sneak preview of the book before its official release the week after the con.
  • Artist Rob “Potsy” Potchak posted an image of his SDCC exclusive cover for his latest issue of Immortal. He’s very excited to have an exclusive in what he calls “the show of shows.”
  • Artist Tony Paulson, aka TheTonus, is currently looking for a vendor to help sell his art during SDCC. If you are or know someone who is willing to help him out, you can get in touch with him via his Instagram.
