Don’t panic. Those wise words made famous by Douglas Adams are certainly sage advice for any SDCC attendee. You don’t panic, though; you read Under the Tents for all the best SDCC news. This edition has announcements from Scott C., Monkey Minion Press, Symbiote Studios, and a lot more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Cosplayer Ivy Doomkitty will be at Booth #4016 Thursday through Sunday of SDCC, where you can stop by and ask her to sign something for you.
