Just how much SDCC news do you want in a day? You want it all, of course, and we’re here to give it to you (as much as we can, anyway). This edition of Under the Tents has some cool SDCC news from the California Browncoats, Gentle Giant, Monkey Minion Press, and even free stuff from Hanging Chad Entertainment.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Artist Jessica Chrysler feels Eartha Kitt was the purrfect Catwoman, and it’s difficult to argue that. You can discuss Catwomen when you visit Chrysler to pick up one of her sketch covers honoring the amazing performer in one of her signature roles.
- Graphic artist Dan Bois just received the new vinyl stickers he’s planning to bring with him to SDCC 2019, and judging by the looks of them, they’ll go fast.
- Gunning for Hits is having a unique SDCC competition. There’s a modified song lyric title in each issue of Image Comics’ Backmatter. When you pick up Issue #6 today (Wednesday), you can visit Gunning for Hits’ website and enter your guess for the correct lyric. The winner will be chosen during SDCC.

- Yesterday, we got to show you the beginnings of what looks like Monkey Minion Press’s SDCC 2019 print. He’s making good progress, as shown in his Instagram feed. We’re very anxious to see the finished product.
- Were you able to score one of Gentle Giant’s Star Wars: Rebels Hera figure? If not, don’t panic (hey, that would look good on a book). They’re bringing limited quantities with them to their booth at SDCC. Get there early; this figure is sure to go fast.
“Star Wars Rebels “Hera” is officially SOLD OUT on our web store!! Not to worry, as there will be a limited quantity at this year’s SDCC, so don’t miss out! pic.twitter.com/BHixLFAYk5

- Actor/producer/director Frazer Brown is finalizing his SDCC plans, which appear to be a lot. Still, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see him, including at the Troma Team booth as well as two panels.
- Marcus Collar was very excited when he tweeted that he’ll be bringing his collaboration with Michael Aushenker, Ghost Pirate, with him to SDCC this year.
