We are down to single-digit days to San Diego Comic-Con, folks. This is it – the final push to the con. This edition of Under the Tents has more commission openings from artists like Sean Forney and Bill Walko, and you get to see what a Mermaidicorn looks like. Hungry for SDCC news? Then read on.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Artist Sean Forney will debut his new Scarlet Huntress Preview Ashcan Book at Table #BB-05 in Artists Alley at SDCC 2018. The preview book will have a fan first look at two new Scarlet Huntress stories along with progress sketches and exclusive art and is limited to only 25 copies available only at SDCC. Look for a Kickstarter coming soon to fund the full-color Scarlet Huntress comic series.
  • War Machine Marketing is bringing some unique exclusives to Booth #1415 at SDCC this year. Pennywise’s sewer lair got a treatment from artist Richie Mitchell in this SDCC exclusive limited to only five pieces at $350 each. You’ll also find jewel-encrusted figures by Ben Flater: Moana’s Tamatoa, Princess Leia, and Mermaid Deadpool (because it’s 2018, why not?), each limited to five pieces at $200 each. Fans of the highly underrated Star Wars Holiday Special can celebrate the late, great Bea Arthur’s performance with their SDCC exclusive Ackmena bartender action figure. Sadly, Ackmena is only available to those lucky few able to attend 501st Legion’s sold-out party. War Machine truly rocks with their 2018 SDCC exclusives.
  • If you’re interested in an SDCC commission from artist Bill Walko, he still has six spots open on his commission list. You can find samples and details on pricing and how to order on his latest newsletter. Find him in Small Press at Table #O-05.

  • If you’re following artist Scott Blair on Twitter, he treated his followers to a sample of what you’ll find at Table #EE-11 in Artists Alley at SDCC this year.

  • Mysterious Galaxy is teaming up with Random House to bring SDCC attendees an opportunity to pre-order the titles they’re bringing to Booth #1515, some of which come with an exclusive item. You can find titles from authors such as Anne Rice, Seanan McGuire, and a lot more here.
  • Henry’s Pub was so obsessed with whether or not they could throw their Jurassic Pub event, they never stopped to think whether or not they should. Stop by their Gaslamp pub during Comic-Con to see just what they’ve wrought. Remember the velociraptor in the kitchen? Hopefully, they don’t have one of those.

  • The creative mind behind RockLove Jewelry, Allison Cimino, will be at FYE’s SDCC pop-up shop in Horton Plaza along with her exclusive Black Panther series jewelry.

  • Val Hochberg is bringing her super-adorable Star Wars Critters to Table #N-12 in Small Press at SDCC.

  • Artist David Colman announced via Twitter he is still taking SDCC commissions, and you do not need to attend to order one. Just email him at [email protected] and let him know what you’re interested in.

  • SDCC 2018 attendees will have several chances to meet with artist and co-founder of tokidoki, Simone Legno. Pay close attention to their Instagram post to see where, when, and how you can meet him.
  • As if this issue wasn’t cute enough, artist Jeff Pina turns the cuteness all the way up to 11 with his Mermaidicorn print he’ll have at Table #Q-06 in Small Press.

  • Surreal artist Camilla d’Errico will have 20 hand-embellished prints total of her four exclusives she’s bringing to Booth #4723 for her 20th SDCC.

  • Today is your last day to pre-order Ninjabot’s limited-edition, hand-embellished SDCC exclusives.

  • If Ninjabot’s exclusives aren’t of too much interest, you can head up to Mezzanine Room 15AB, where he’s giving away free posters with a demo of his new game, PopCats Fighter. Then head down to his Small Press Table #L-08, where he’ll even sign it.

  • Cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp is holding another Vamp Hunt this year at SDCC. Follow her Instagram and website for more info and all the goodies you’ll find.

  • Cryptozoic announced they will debut their new Classic Harley Quinn vinyl figure, designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg, at SDCC at Booth #115 for $29.99.
  • Artist Andrew Bell teased his Twitter followers with a piece of his Never Look Back print he’s bringing with him to SDCC.

  • If you’re donating blood in this year’s blood drive, The Geeky Hooker would like to reward you with a chance to win one of her three critters she’s bringing especially for those who donate blood.

  • Stop by Booth #4533 to visit Fat Rabbit Farm, where you’ll find these adorable Ninja Babee vinyl stickers.
