More San Diego Comic-Con news and announcements were rolling in all weekend long and we have collected all the tastiest bits and pieces for you to devour. We’ve got metallic kitty cat prints, (more) killer bunnies, commissions to keep your eyes on, and much more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- Artist Greg Horn has announced his convention schedule and his signature rules. He’ll be making a stop at San Diego Comic-Con so dig out those back issues for him to sign.
- Over on the Comic-Con section of Reddit, the community is looking for help getting their annual party off the ground. Location, day and time are to be determined but you can volunteer to assist with several portions of the planning, including supplying the giveaways.
- Those who submitted panel ideas for SDCC are starting to hear back and several, like the Fansplaining Podcast, took to Twitter to share their excitement.
FANSPLAINING IS GOING TO SDCC!
We're so excited to announce that our panel got approved! Stay tuned for details of when, where, and who (IT'S EXCITING). We'll be hosting a meetup and taking part in other panels too!

- Artist Ash Evans already has a few new items planned for SDCC, a shimmery metallic feline print, as well as an enchanting wizard bunny enamel which will be given out with qualifying purchases.
- If Factory Entertainment’s Killer Bunny exclusive got your attention, then have we got a comic for you! Creator Brian Churilla, will have copies of his fan-made comics, Dave: Killer Bunnies From Hell and Summer School: Chainsaw with him at Comic-Con.
- A few months ago we posted that Head Lopper creator Andrew MacLean would be attending SDCC and we had high hopes for commissions. Looks like we can uncross our fingers as MacLean has updated his website to say that SDCC commissions are “Coming Soon!” He gives all the details regarding pricing, sizing and how to obtain one when they go up. Check out some examples on his Instagram.
- Rob Hart, author of the forthcoming novel The Warehouse, showed off some of the fun freebies that SDCC attendees might be able to snag in July. The Warehouse is due out in stores in August.

- Australia’s #1 independent comic book series the Xtreme Champion Tournament will have an exclusive SDCC cover for their book, XCT: Spartacus. Plan on picking one up at the show, or you can pledge to support this project, which is already fully funded, on their Kickstarter page.
- And lastly, Top Cow, a subsidiary of Image Comics, will be back at SDCC this year, setting up shop at Booth #2629. They are promising sketches, exclusive covers, signings, and even an appearance by Marc Silvestri. Time to dig up all those old books to get signed!
