[PREVIOUS] If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite person – fictional or otherwise – would look like as a cartoon cat or a cartoon dog, we’ve got you covered.

One of our favorite artists, Ninjabot: The Art of Arnel Baluyot, returns to San Diego Comic-Con this year – and they’re bringing back their popular customized PopCat and PopDog pieces. You can have Baluyot create one for you (either in the form of a “Mini” painting for $45 each or a full size for $85 each) now that their commissions are officially open. Character headshots are also $85. Plus, you’ll also get a free PopCats pin with every pre-order commission!

Additionally, Ninjabot is bringing back their free exclusive booth giveaway – which for 2018, will be die-cut vinyl stickers. You can stop by Small Press L-08 daily for a different sticker each day (Wednesday will be M’Baku, Thursday will be Nakia, Friday will be Shuri, Saturday will be Okoye, and Sunday will be Killmonger). You can also score T’Challa himself with any $15+ purchase at their booth, on any day, while supplies last.

[UPDATE June 21] They’re also giving away three sets of these awesome Black Panther stickers – and all you have to do is enter is simply follow the instructions on TwitterFacebook, and/or Instagram.

But Ninjabot has something even cooler up their sleeve for Comic-Con, in that they’ll be holding a demo of their brand new game PopCats Fighter in Room 15AB in the Mezzenine Level on Thursday, July 19 – Sunday, July 22. Not only will you get to play the awhile game ahead of its August 6 launch, but everyone who stops by to play will also receive free posters and stickers.

This is only the start of Ninjabot’s San Diego Comic-Con plans, though. They’ll also be unveiling this year’s SDCC exclusive print soon, which will come in both a regular version and an embellished version. Pre-orders for this year’s print will begin on July 1.
