Our last Under the Tents for SDCC 2018 may be small, but it has big SDCC news in it. We have news that range from cosplay to commissions, and we even have some sno-cones to tell you about.
Here’s a look at What you might have missed:
- If Phantasm’s Tall Man terrified you as much as he did me, you’ll want to hang these giclée posters he’ll have at Booth #4619 somewhere you don’t plan on sleeping.
Debuting at #SDCC are my two new Phantasm and Phantasm II giclee posters! I created the artwork for the @arrowvideo box set in 2017 and I’m happy to offer prints. Grab one before the Tall Man does at booth #4619 #phantasm #arrowvideo #ghoulishgary #sdccexclusive pic.twitter.com/qlXZ4thM5r

- Want to win a free night’s stay at the Hilton Bayfront? Just follow the directions in their tweet, and you could win a one-night stay. Winners will be chosen on Monday, July 23, so you won’t be able to us it for SDCC this year.
