The San Diego Comic-Con news train keeps rolling right along. This past week saw panel approvals go out from CCI, so if you submitted a panel idea for SDCC 2018, you should have received an answer. We also have some new stuff from Symbiote Studios, Dead Zebra, and much more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Prolific creator Susan Lee was excited to announce via Twitter that her Women on the Dark Side panel was approved for SDCC 2018. Stay tuned for more details on date, time, and location.
- Tristan, one of the artists behind the duo at Art Knight Studios, was also excited to let the Twitterverse know he will be paneling at SDCC this year. Look for him at the Drawing Inspiration panel in Room 29AB on Thursday, July 19 from 3:00PM-4:00PM PT.
- While it’s highly unlikely for us to see The X-Files bring anything to SDCC this year, X-Files News will be holding a panel at SDCC. Stay tuned to our Panel Post for panel name, date, time, and location.

Make it to Booth #1335 fast if you want to grab one of these.
