Welcome to San Diego Comic-Con, have a look around, anything that brain of yours can think of can be found. We’ve got mountains of content, some better, some worse. If none of it’s of interest to you, you’d be the first! We’ve got a brand new edition of Under the Tents for you, full of artists, comic book companies, a screening, a chance to attend after-parties (if you have deep pockets), and more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- The account for artist Alex Ross showed off a new original art paying tribute to the Captain America that will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con.
