Under the Tents: Roblox, Super 7, Diana Leto, Kneady Bakery, Christopher Uminga

You deserve a weekend edition of Under the Tents because you’ve been through a lot. You survived badge registration, you slayed Hotelpocalypse, you waited out badge shipping…you deserve a medal, or at least some delightfully fresh San Diego Comic-Con news. Commissions are opening soon for Terry Dodson, Super 7 is teasing us, Diana Leto is conjuring Mojo Jojo and so much more.

Let’s take a look at the news and announcements you might have missed:

  • Legendary creator Marv Wolfman will be setting up camp in Artists Alley this year, table number coming soon.

  • Game developer Rykrsmith will be bringing the new game Words: Dungeon Adventure to show off at Comic-Con.

  • Fans of Bill Walko will want to watch his Twitter for his commission announcement, which he promises is not far away.

  • Night Circus writer Erin Morgenstern plans to be in attendance at SDCC, possibly to promote her new book, Starless Sea, out November 5. Note to self: bring gin to bribe for an advanced copy!

  • Christopher Uminga  has just finished up his own Justice League print, available next month at Comic-Con.

  • Nerdy Novelty Design is crafting up a bunch of great stuff to stock their booth. You can find them at #1949.

  • Another digital bonus Roblox item will be the Frosted Hero Helmet, also presumably available with an SDCC exclusive toy.

  • Artist Terry Dodson has laid out all the details about how he will be accepting his SDCC commissions. Limited to 20 and opening on July 3, you’ll need to have fast fingers to e-mail him your request. Be sure to read over all the details on his website.

  • Unforunately, Mitch Gerads cover for Batman #74 has been scrapped due to story changes. Fortunately, it will remain as one of the prints he’ll be offering at SDCC. You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have…the facts of corporate publishing?

  • Teases from Super 7 are starting to trickle in…from very different ends of the pop culture spectrum. Interesting how the phrase ‘”You blockhead!” could refer to either one. Super 7 reveals will start next week.

  • Sugar, spice….and everything nice! Artist Diana Leto posted a fantastic process video of a Powerpuff Girls piece that will be at Comic-Con. Later she showed some more finished work and promises to share the final product soon.

  • The California Browncoats are readying their merchandise for SDCC, including these enamel pins by Prophecy Girl. This may be one of your last chances to pick up some shiny Prophecy Girl items so don’t delay.

  • Kneady Bakery of Thousand Oaks, is once again offering pre-ordered bungles of nerdy goodies (including Beam Me Up Biscotti and Robert Brownie Jrs.) to help get you though the worst of line-waiting. Place your order now for pick up on Saturday July 20. Please note they will have a new pick-up location and times.

  • Producer of collectible and designer toys and apparel Nsurgo will be at Booth # 5601 this year. Be sure to stop by and check out their high quality licensed items, including skate decks.

  • Sean Forney posted a look at his Scarlet Huntress Cryptid Hunting Club pin sets which he’ll have at Comic-Con. I  love seeing that SDCC 50th Anniversary logo on items!

  • And finally, raise a glass, or a slice of cake, to Batman, celebrating his 80th anniversary in 2019. He doesn’t look a day over…well, it’s hard to tell under that cowl. Anyway, Jin Yung Kim made this adorable cake-centric piece and we can’t wait to see it in person. We are very hungry for SDCC…and cake.

Anything we missed? Anything catch your eye? What’s your favorite kind of cake? Let us know in the comments, drop us a line, or tweet us at @SD_Comic_Con.
