Happy New Year, con-goers! We can now officially say that San Diego Comic-Con 2020 is this year. If you’re wondering if it’s too early to start those spreadsheets, I ask, is it ever? Let’s start 2020 off right with some SDCC news from Monkey Minion Press, Doug Jones, Magic Wheelchair, and a lot more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- If you’re looking for me to be Justin Harder’s SDCC booth babe this year, you’ll be as disappointed as I was to learn he’s taking a break from cons this year.
Taking all cons off, yessir! I had to much fun as an attendee to go back to working it LOL https://t.co/k4ateYB2hB

- Now that the bad news is out of the way, we’re happy to see that Inki-Drop has SDCC 2020 confirmed on their con schedule. Find them at Booth #1703 (for those spreadsheets you’ve started).
- John Ottinger is bringing a new series of Dweores prints to SDCC this year. He posted the first one to Facebook and hopes you like it.
- Jennifer Nolan was excited to let her Twitter followers know she’s been confirmed for the SDCC Art Show this year and is already working on crochet creations to bring with her.
- Artist Mark Brooks let the Twitterverse know he’s holding a few Tool posters to bring to SDCC with him.
No sweat! We have a few posters left but are holding them back for con season. We will bring a few along with us to various shows especially SDCC and NYCC.

- If you were wondering if BossLogic will be at Comic-Con this year, wonder no more. It looks like he’ll be hanging with Planet Awesome at a few cons this year, including SDCC.
2020 is going to be a little busy for me 😉😁
I'm still working on Florida, Brazil and Japan so watch out for updates! pic.twitter.com/8nt2qvZpjL

- Artist/illustrator Eamon O’Donoghue teased on Twitter that he’s bringing a “super cool project” (and a renewed appreciation for the works of Gary Newman) with him to SDCC this year.
Currently working on a super cool project that will be revealed at SDCC2020 and checking out the Gary Newman back catalog on Spotify. Not sure why I never paid attention sooner as he's pretty decent. #art #sdcc #garynewman #spotify #toyart

- DC writer Robert Venditti tweeted he is “sure” he’ll be back at Comic-Con this year.
Thanks for the kind words! I’m sure I’ll be at SDCC again this year. Will you be there?

- If you’re looking for author Tara Bennett to sign any of her work for you, there’s a good possibility she’ll be at San Diego Comic-con this year.
Oh, I wish it was my choice! I am doing a book signing at @BookSoup next Wed. But there is no book tour (just for celebs these days). Don't think I am going to any cons for work until SDCC & NYCC (maybe). But @poisonedpen is selling signed copies by Diana and I!

- The amazing people at Magic Wheelchair have been putting smiles on con-goers’ faces for several years. This year, CCI is providing them with a featured booth space in the Exhibit Hall where they can display their brilliant creations.
San Diego Comic Con was such an awesome highlight of our summer! We had the chance to meet Jaiden and make a Batmobile Magic Wheelchair for him. We're so grateful to @Comic_Con for allowing us to have a featured booth space on the show floor this year!https://t.co/lIOpcbohCV

- Freelance illustrator Cliff Cramp let his Instagram followers know he’ll have a booth at SDCC this year with some pretty awesome neighbors: Lucasfilm artist Jerry Vanderstelt and fellow freelancer Brian Rood.
- Monkey Minion Press shared their 2020 con schedule with their Instagram followers, and it looks like they’ll be back in San Diego once again for Comic-Con this year.
- Actor Doug Jones took to Twitter to post his 2020 con schedule, where he lists SDCC 2020 as “pending.” We suspect this means he’ll be there as part of the Star Trek: Discovery cast, but when it comes to Comic-Con, anything can happen.
