Have you had enough SDCC news yet? Of course not. You’re reading Under the Tents, which means you want more, more, more Comic-Con news. This edition has some critter drops, an SDCC first-timer, and some very clever announcements. And crochet.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Artist Scott Sutton announced he is coming to SDCC 2019 with some help from one of his Family of Ree characters, SuperBeebee. SuperBeebee is leaving the Planet of Ree to meet Sutton at San Diego Comic-Con but gets a little sidetracked along the way. You can follow SuperBeebee’s adventures and keep up with Sutton’s artwork on his SuperBeebee page.
- Fans of comics artist/illustrator Sarah Graley will find SDCC 2019 on her list of appearances. Stay tuned for our panels and autographs posts to see where you can find Graley this year (aside from her table, of course).
- I was taught at a very young age to read the fine print in whatever is placed in front of you. It’s a good thing I did, because in tiny print at the bottom of writer/artist/cinephile William O. Tyler’s Kickstarter announcement for the queer comic anthology Theater of Terror! Revenge of the Queers, which he edited, it shows his next event to be San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
- Are you one of those people who likes to read the last page in the book first, just in case? If you are, then you’ll love artist Thodoris Laourdekis’ (also known as Laourde) Instagram post of the 100th and last page of her latest work, Worn, which she plans to debut at SDCC this year.
- Artist Keith Hall from inkstainedbrush took to his Instagram feed to post a possible SDCC 2019 print idea to celebrate Hellboy’s 25th birthday. Look for the finished product at Table #GG-12 in Artists’ Alley.
- Fans of artist Vince Alvendia will find him in Artists’ Alley at Table #FF-12 at SDCC this year, according to his website.
- Artist Shawn Coss added SDCC to his Appearances for the first time ever. He’ll be sharing a table with Maddox, so make sure to find him and give him a warm SDCC welcome.
- Do you listen to the Waiting to Dry podcast? If so, you may have caught the moment in Episode #72 where artist Tony Guaraldi-Brown revealed he’ll be at SDCC this year in Artists’ Alley at Table #DD-07.
- In the past, the critter drops we’ve seen were crocheted. This trend seems to be changing with Joshua Grossberg’s daily MiniWok toy drops every day for SDCC 2019. Follow his Instagram (and turn on his notifications) to find out where he drops these adorable Endorians. Yub nub!
- I… Am… Iron Man! I never said there wouldn’t be any crocheted critter drops at SDCC this year. Morgan Clark has that covered with her tiny Iron Man critter she plans to drop at Comic-Con. Follow her Twitter to see where you can find the little guy.
Starting my #SDCC #critterdrop projects for this year! He's a little chonker of an Iron Man, but I'm proud of him. Thanks @GeekyHooker for the inspiration and the help from your book! pic.twitter.com/8dehtrLw7B

- Another artist getting in on drops is Rika Kelley. Her plan is to try some themed drops this year with a new drop each day. Visit her Instagram to see some examples of what she plans to drop and when.
- A veteran of SDCC’s Artists’ Alley, Sean Forney will be back again this year. Find him at Table #BB-05.
