We’ve made it to Friday! We hope you have your spreadsheets and calendars ready for when CCI announces Friday’s SDCC panels. In the meantime, you can catch up on some great SDCC news from Funko, On the Mic Podcast, Weta Workshop, and a lot more.

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

  • Funko does have some bad news in that they won’t be offering signings at their booth this year, as they already have too much on their plate.

  • Tim Drake from On the Mic Podcast is excited to announce the two superstar guests for his SDCC panel at the San Diego Public Library on Thursday, July 20 at 4PM. The first is the awesome Todd Masters, the master behind your favorite SDCC 2017 Booth (#4429), toddland. The second started with a whisper when he grabbed his favorite axe and joined Neon Trees, guitarist Chris Allen.

  • Artist Chandra Free announced her sketch details for SDCC. For $65, you can ask her to sketch something for you. Don’t want to carry it around with you? She’ll also ship it anywhere in the U.S. for free. Email her at chandrafree@gmail.com for more details and to order your sketches.

  • Ed Boon, creator of Injustice 2, announced the game would have a presence at SDCC. The Twitter thread is worth scrolling through for the GIFs alone.

  • If you’re planning on stopping by Josh Warner’s Small Press Table #L-09, here’s a taste of what you’ll find there.
