It’s the weekend before San Diego Comic-Con gets underway, and the news just keeps getting better and better. This issue of Under the Tents has lots of it from great artists as well as an announcement from NBC’s The Good Place.

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

  • Guild Wars would love you to come hang out with them while they’re at The Experience at Petco Park. You won’t need a badge to ride the Griffon or enjoy the food they’re bringing. See their recent post for details on their schedule and just what they’re bringing to the party.

  • Gabriela Hernandez, founder of Bésame Cosmetics, will be on hand for a meet-and-greet following her panel, Agent Carter: We Know Her Value, at Table #AA18 in Sails Pavilion.

  • Comic book artist J. Scott Campbell tweeted that he’s bringing some heat to SDCC this year with all his great work. Good thing the convention center upgraded the air conditioning last year.

  • The folks behind The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time are bringing even more star power to their SDCC panel.

  • Sharknado isn’t just inside the convention center; you can find Pandra’s Sharknado fan art decorating the SDCC shuttle buses.

  • Tentacle Kitty is back at SDCC with a new Booth number, 5148, and some adorable plushes. Everyone who purchases one of their plushes will receive this SDCC Limited Edition Legendary Golden Lanyard with safety clip that allows the wearer to quickly yank it off, should the need arise.
