Wait! Don’t start your weekend yet! We still have one more Under the Tents for the week to bring you all kinds of great San Diego Comic-Con news from The Geeky Hooker, WETA Workshop, and a lot more.

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

  • If you’ve been missing all the crochet this year, so have we. Luckily, our good friend The Geeky Hooker hasn’t forgotten us or SDCC this year. She revealed which critters we’ll be looking for to her Twitter followers, who will be watching her feed for clues when Comic-Con starts.

  • Artist Scott Lost found inspiration in Deadpool 2‘s Domino for his ticket stub prints he’ll have at his table in Artists Alley, #FF-11.
  • Lucha libre wrestling group Masked Republic are excited to join Headlocked Comics at Booth #1901 at SDCC this year, where they have lots of exciting events planned, including the birth of new comic series The Luchaverse and a signing with wrestling star Rey Mysterio.
