Just a subtle reminder that I’ll be on the #imdboat interviewing folks for @imdb at @comic_con next week, culminating with a LIVE show you can stream anywhere on Saturday! All my @americancomedyco shows with @jaymewes, @ralphgarman & @marcbernardin are already sold out, but if you’re at #comiccon and you wanna see me? After skipping it last year, I have a show in Hall H on Saturday night! I’ll be doing Q&A, watching #Hollyweed with an audience for the first time, and welcoming special guests @grantgust and @cavanaghtom, who’ll be debuting their flick #tomandgrant at the panel and telling us all about it! It’s gonna be a packed panel with a @weightwatchers ambassador who is very near his goal! Photo credit belongs to the always amazing @allanamato! Kids, if you can manage it, don’t leave this world without having your portrait shot by #allanamato. Look at that image: the man knows how to polish a turd! #KevinSmith #imdb #hallh #sandiegocomiccon

Look for its debut at Table #K-03 in Small Press, where both co-authors will be onhand with new prints, an ashcan preview of their first issue, and an adorable Moober enamel pin.
  • We are constant advocates of taking breaks during SDCC to maximize your Comic-Con experience. Zenescope Entertainment wants to encourage SDCC attendees to go get some gelato at Gelato Paradiso, so they’ve teamed up for the second year in a row to offer three original new gelato flavors based on the company’s popular characters throughout Comic-Con weekend. Flavors include Krampus Cookie Crunch, Mad Hatter Mash-up and Skye Mathers Sorbetto. Gelato Paradiso is located at 789 W Harbor Dr. and is a short walk northwest of the San Diego Convention Center. Customers who purchase any Zenescope-themed gelato will be eligible to purchase a rare San Diego Comic Con Zenescope metal card limited to 50, while supplies last.

  • Flat Bonnie previously announced that her plushies will be available at DKE’s booth, but we now know her adorable plushies can also be found at Giant Robot’s Booth #1729. Look for her Baby BunEwok (Plush) that will melt your heart at Giant Robot for $20 each. Each plush comes with a signed and numbered hangtag and an adoption certificate. Can’t make it to SDCC? No problem; Flat Bonnie will have a limited number of Baby BunEwok plushies available on her website that you can pre-order now.
  • Marvel Studios continues to celebrate its 10th anniversary by partnering with Hyundai for their Iron Man-inspired Hyundai. Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada will be on hand at the Marvel Booth #2329 along with Hyundai’s VP of Styling, SangYup Lee on Thursday, July 19 at 12PM PT to display what we imagine would make the perfect addition to Tony Stank’s… er, Stark’s garage.
