Happy March Ublog friends! We are now just four short months away from San Diego Comic-Con and while much of the recent focus has been on April’s WonderCon in Anaheim, there are still tidbits of news popping up regarding who and what you can expect to see in July. We have a handful of attendance confirmations for you, some yarn art destined for the Art Show, a spooky event you can RSVP to, and more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- Artist and illustrator Brianna Cherry Garcia already has nine conventions on her schedule for 2020, and San Diego Comic-Con is among them. We’re so happy that Garcia is returning to San Diego this year, and if you haven’t ever seen her commissions or her fun Marvel and Disney art, you should definitely check out her work.

My confirmed conventions for 2020 so far. I DO plan to add more to this list (still waiting for certain cons to open up applications). So keep an eye out, I’ll be updating the link in my profile! If you have any questions regarding my commissions or schedule, ask away! . #c2e2 #eccc #acecomiccon #wondercon #megacon #phoenixfanfusion #dpcc #sdcc #fanxsaltlake #conventionlist #artistalley
- Comic book writer Rich Douek, whose works include TMNT, Gunner Magic, and Road of Bones, recently told a fan that he will be attending San Diego Comic-Con.
Planning to be at SDCC for sure! I may try to do Wondercon too, but I’m not sure that weekend will be good for me this year.

- Last month writer Peter Clines updated his FAQ and it included that you’ll be able to see him this summer at SDCC.
- As we previously mentioned in a recent WonderPost, artist James Silvani is taking some time off from conventions to better prepare for San Diego Comic-Con. We’ll be happy to see him and hope is well deserved break means he’ll have some amazing art for us to buy.
For those that missed it…
I’m not exhibiting at any cons this year until SDCC at the earliest. I’m taking this time to have something more than ducks in my repertoire. In the meantime I’m open for mailing commissions and trick roping. Silvaniart at gmail for details.

- While details are scarce right now, the EctoXo group is planning a takeover at the “Most Haunted Home in America,” the Whaley House, on Saturday, July 25. Be sure to follow their Facebook event for more details.
- The spectacular Todd Nauck will be tabling at San Diego Comic-Con and has released prices and details regarding the commissions that he will be doing. You’ll want to read over the process for obtaining a spot on his list very carefully if you’d like to snag one of these grails.
- Usagi Yojimbo creator and possibly the nicest guy in the business, Stan Sakai, is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con. According to his website, commission requests will open up in May. In the meantime, you can familiarize yourself with his prices and options.
- Someone who knows exactly where he will be come late July is artist Bill Walko. He tweeted his Small Press table location (O-05) back in November. Walko was very busy at C2E2 doing some lovely commissions this past weekend, so let’s hope he offers those again at SDCC too.
I’ll be in small press O-05 at the end of aisle 1800! I’ll bring some ivy!

- Writer and artist from the great state of Minnesota, Erik Burnham, will be at San Diego Comic-Con in July. You can thank him in person for his amazing work on nostalgia comics, including Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and T.M.N.T.
- Purveyors of limited edition, high quality video games and video game merchandise and soundtracks, Limited Run, have added San Diego Comic-Con to their list of events in 2020. We’ve got some folks on the UBlog team who are very excited about this announcement (looking at you, Robert!) and can’t wait to see what they have in store.
- Crochet artist Jennifer Nolan has finished one of her pieces for the San Diego Comic-Con Art Show and it is MAGICAL! Behold, the green dragon!

- Strangers in Paradise creator Terry Moore has his 2020 schedule on his website and, no surprise, SDCC is included. Moore is a regular at this show and you might remember the amazing sketches did last year for those who purchased his hardcovers. We look forward to seeing what he has up his sleeve for us this year.
- And lastly today, another appearance schedule has been updated, that of artist Adam Hughes. He’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con in July, likely with a jam packed agenda like last year and hopefully with some of his beautiful prints. We’ll keep our eagle eyes open and let you know the details as he announces them.
