It seems like San Diego Comic-Con 2020 is a long time away with just over 162 days left until the con, but we still found lots of great SDCC news to share. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some con news from Elhoffer Design, the Afrofuturism Lounge, and a lot more.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- If you’re in the U.S. and looking to see Marvel writer Dan Slott, you can find him at SDCC this year (among his other con appearances).
No London plans in my near future. Sorry. 🙁
But if you're in the U.S. this year, I'll be in…
Los Vegas, NV & Orange County, CA in early February
NJ for a signing in March
Orlando, FLA in April
At SDCC in July
And at NYCC in October
