It’s a little chilly in San Diego this week, but con season is heating up. Panel approvals went out this week, so we’ve seen a lot of happy panelists on social media. If you’re flying in for the con, we hope you got your plane tickets this week, like Gabriel Bá did. Read on to see who else you’ll find at SDCC 2019.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Brazilian comic artist Gabriel Bá just bought tickets to San Diego, and since he’s coming all the way from Brazil, we don’t think he’ll just be here for Sea World. This could be a big year for Umbrella Academy at SDCC (I hope Gerard Way will be there!).
We just bought our tickets to San Diego. #SDCC

- Artist Eamon O’Donoghue has his hands full with all his work for SDCC. We’ll have to wait and see just which two licences he’s referring to.
Juggling art jobs of two truly amazing movie licences. Will hopfully be revealed at SDCC2019. 🙂

- Can’t stop, won’t stop. Whatever you may have thought about the recent Game of Thrones finale (no spoilers!), we think you’ll find Patrick Ballesteros’s latest SDCC mini-originals makes up for it.
Still one of the best scenes from this past season, “to Sir Brienne of Tarth Knight of the Seven Kingdoms!”
