Under the Tents: Ace Parking, Zenescope, IMDb Boat, Nooligan, Jason Metcalf

WonderCon is less than a week away, but there’s still plenty of news about that other convention – San Diego Comic-Con. Today, we’ve got confirmations from lots of artists that they’ll be heading to the convention to exhibit, as well as an update on the parking sale, a chance to color your way to victory (and prizes), and more.

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

  • No surprise, but Zenescope is returning to San Diego Comic-Con this year, where you’ll be among the first to be able to grab one of their quarterly Zenboxes. And in doing so, you’ll be guaranteed to score their Hellchild, Mystere, Dorothy, and The Duchess pins – only available through the Zenboxes. You can also show off your coloring skills at SDCC with Zenescope, in their 2019 Coloring Contest. Simply color in one of their two coloring art pages, post it on social media with the hashtag #ZenColorContest19, and you could win a coloring book pack, a set of 3 mini collectible art prints, and more – with the winners announced during SDCC. Find more information, including the coloring pages, on their website.

  • According to a recent tweet from Ace Parking, if you’d like to try to score a coveted parking spot downtown during SDCC, look for an update from them sometime in April. We’ll keep our eyes on them and let you know as soon as they update anything.

  • Author and comic writer Cavan Scott announced via his website he will be at SDCC 2019. Anything beyond that will require some patience as we wait for him to post anything further.

  • If you look real hard at Bean Leaf Press’s website, you’ll notice they list SDCC 2019 on their list of Free Sketch Dates on the right-hand side.

  • The moose is loose at SDCC again as Hanging Chad Entertainment returns to Table #L-09 in Small Press with The Adventures of Mighty Moose. Look for more moose announcements coming sometime in April. A moose once bit my sister. No, really! She was carving her initials…
  • After WonderCon, artist Melissa Pagluica’s next stop is San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
