A scant five weeks from now we’ll be in the thick of SDCC. That means six weeks from now, we’ll all have the post-con blues. But let’s not focus on the negative, let’s accentuate the positive with a load of new announcements from Alex Pardee, Terry Moore, Lea Hernandez Seidman and more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- Strangers in Paradise creator Terry Moore stopped sketching in hardcovers long enough to design a new shirt that he will have at Comic-Con, which will be printed by Graphitti.
- Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd will be at Comic-Con and hopes to see you there. Same, Gale, same. We hope this is another sign that we’ll see a nice big Walking Dead panel.
I hope to see you there! #WednesdayThoughts #SDCC #SDCC2019 #TWD #TheWalkingDead https://t.co/g6ly5y8pqp

- If you missed out on James Silvani’s commissions (which were posted in our constantly updates List of Open Art Commissions page), fear not! He’ll have a load of originals available on site, at Booth #5555.
- Writer and artist Jeff Lemire recently sent out his newsletter and told fans to keep watching for more SDCC details to be announced soon. He’ll be signing at both Dark Horse and Image, and partaking in the DC Black Label panel.
- MonkeyMan was appreciative that we posted about his SDCC plans in UTT, so much so that he gave us a peek at some of the other things he’ll have there.
Big shout out and thank you to @SD_Comic_Con for including me in today's update. Here's a look at some of the other peices that I will be bringing with me to @Comic_Con! 😁👍 pic.twitter.com/vCb30bRi3g

- Artist Lea Hernandez Seidman is offering small original pieces of art for an incredibly reasonable price, you can even make requests.
- Victoria Ying has created a print version of a comic that previously appeared online called My Mother Tongue. She will have them at San Diego Comic-Con. The cover features some beautiful calligraphy work done by her grandfather.

- Another item you can find at Alex Pardee’s already well stocked booth is his mini-comic, The Pinfolk. Chances of this book being entirely bonkers is 100%.
Continuing my 2019 theme for San Diego Comic Con with a new zine release that absolutely zero people have asked for, and that makes me smile. 😍#ThePinfolk #SDCC pic.twitter.com/0Th36WTzU2
