In Exclusives, Panel & Autograph News by Kerry DixonLeave a Comment

San Diego Comic-Con is officially THIS month, and if you aren’t terrified by the amount of news still to be announced, well, we envy you. On this (not-so) lazy Sunday afternoon, we have plenty of Comic-Con news for you that we’ve rounded up for you, including hints that Daredevil will indeed be at the convention, some very cool art and exclusives, and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival schedule.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • The Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival returns this year, with over 50 films, across a wide range of genres. Thursday – Saturday, you can stop by the Marriott Grand Ballroom 3 & 4 to see films like the animated Shelldon, or Kyle Roberts’ The Grave. There will also be panels from industry experts, like Saturday’s Stop Motion as a Special Effect. Then on Sunday, July 23, the winners will be announced. Find the complete schedule on Comic-Con International’s website.

  • Speaking of panels, be sure to stop by How to Be a Financial Super Hero on Thursday, July 19 at 4PM in the Marriott to snag exclusive comic book versions of K’nayha and the Crow. Chris Neuhahn revealed that there will be 50 copies available at the panel.
  • Artist Jason Edmiston is bringing his very popular Eyes Without a Face series — which features, well, the eyes of some of your favorite pop culture icons  — to San Diego Comic-Con 2018. It sounds like the new works will be through Mondo, but stay tuned for more information.
  • Rob DenBleyker, the co-creator of Cyanide & Happiness, showed off a new Shiny Red Box Edition of his Joking Hazard party game. You can grab it exclusive at Booth #1234 on the show floor, and best of all? It comes signed by Austin St. John, the original Red Ranger.

  • Porgs are everywhere — but what if they also took over the Marvel Cinematic Universe? That’s exactly what artist Chris Gugliotti has imaged with his latest SDCC 2018 exclusive print. It’s limited to just 25 pieces at Arists Alley BB-15, and there’s no way these won’t be gone faster than you can say, “BUT LOOK AT ALL THE PORGS.”
  • Super7 teased a new Transformers exclusive heading to San Diego Comic-Con. Our guess is that this would be available at their Booth, but we’ll have to wait and see.

  • Cardboard Spaceship is launching the second series of Thimblestump Hollow at San Diego Comic-Con this year, with more adorable vinyl figures. They’ll be debuting four characters in a very special “Fruit Salad” colorway for SDCC this year. Pick them up at Booth #5638.
  • Want a sneak peek at this year’s Space Command booth on the show floor? From producer Marc Zicree, here’s your early look at Booth #4015:

  • You can find Trends International (Booth #2913) inside the Lucasfilm Pavilion on the show floor this July, where they’ll have an exclusive Russell Walks Star Wars poster triptych. Walks will also be on-hand for signings.
