Under the Dinner Table: Jin Yung Kim, BAIT, Attack of the Doc!, S. Preston, Ben Templesmith

Today’s edition of Under the Dinner Tables is mostly focused on the exhibit show floor — which is almost fully baked. Exhibitors received their booth and table placements, which hopefully means the rest of us will get a look at the full menu soon. But whatever your palette — be it comic writers and artists, literary authors, Squid Game, sports, or more — we have something for you.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Artist Jin Yung Kim, also known as JYK All Day, has created a new piece in his Pop Wagons collection, which showcases pop culture characters and their rides (or imagined rides). You can pick up this Squid Game piece at Comic-Con Special Edition — and you don’t even have to play Red Light, Green Light to score.

  • Hey, remember G4 and Attack of the Show? A new documentary created by Chris Gore, Attack of the Doc!, aims to look at what happened to both, and you can get a sneak peek and the debut of the official trailer at a panel called “Docs That Rock” on Saturday, November 27 at 7PM.

  • Writer and musician David Lucarelli and his Abacab Studios will be making their one and only convention appearance for the year at CCSE. Stop by to check out his creative works in Small Press P-15.

  • While you’re on the exhibit floor, be sure to check out Twitch gamers Chew Gamers, who provide players with walkthroughs and helpful tips.

  • While we told you last week that digital artist Jay Peralta, also known as Atra Messor Art, would be making the trek to CCSE – here’s a look at the holographic exclusive prints he’ll have at the convention. They’re limited to just 10 of each, so if you want to pick one up at the show, be sure to message him to pre-order yours now.
