Under the Tents: Umbrella Academy, Mark Brooks, Patrick Ballesteros, Gabriel Bá

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!).

  • 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.

  • DC/Marvel artist Mark Brooks revealed the cover to his latest sketchbook which is set to debut at SDCC 2019.

  • Descendant and Devil Within writer Stephanie Phillips is also ready to get classy with us in San Diego for SDCC 2019.

  • 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.

  • Ee chee wa maa! Johnny Dope Kicks is bringing his new fanzine, Ewoks over Everything Volume 1, to Small Press Table #N-14 at SDCC 2019.

  • It looks like you’ll find writer/blogger Ken Choy on not one, but two panels at SDCC this year.

  • Adam Pawlus is brushing up on his Keynote skills to prepare for his panel on toys at SDCC this year.

  • Frequent SDCC panelist Dr. Zhivago (yes, that’s her real name) is paneling for her sixth year in a row this year with her “Dr. Zhivago’s Spotlight on the Journey of Kids in Cartooning.” If you’re going to be at SDCC this year, she’d love to see you there.

  • Artist/writer Danika Stone was stoked to tweet the epic lineup to her Into the Fanzone panel at SDCC this year.

  • What’s the most powerful weapon against the zombie apocalypse? Our brains! No, really, at least that’s what scientist Kelley Boston will try to convince you of in her “Infection Prevention” panel at SDCC this year. SCIENCE!

  • New York Times bestselling writer Mariah McCourt seemed a little surprised that her Spooky Kids panel was approved. Look for it Thursday night, July 18, from 7:00pm-8:00pm PT.

  • Susan Lee sent an invitation via Twitter to Gail Simone for her Women on the Dark Side panel at SDCC this year.
